John Joseph "Jack" Nicholson is 80 years old today.

Jack Nicholson was raised believing his maternal grandparents
were his parents and his mother was his sister. He did not find
out the truth until a TIME magazine journalist informed him in
1974. During high school, he was voted class clown and served
an entire year’s worth of afternoons in detention.

LONG-LOST LINCOLN LETTER UP FOR SALE

Image result for long lost lincoln letter up for sale

A once lost letter written by Abraham Lincoln responding to accusations of getting
in the way of a corruption investigation, is worth more than $80,000 – and it is now
for sale. The letter was one of several that were left in an abandoned house and
lost for many years. It is dated Feb. 12, 1864 and was addressed to Secretary of
the Treasury Salmon Chase, who Lincoln believed was behind “all the mischief”
in an accusation that the nation’s 16th president was thwarting a congressional investigation of corruption.   

Nathan Raab, the principal at The Raab Collection said…“This is a remarkable
find, we have no doubt it will find an appreciative new home.”
