RE: Stump the German
I got one that likely will NOT stump the German.

Hey, Sissi lived in Vienna.
   
I was in Vienna last week, and "met" this "friend of humanity".  Do you recognize him? 
And how did he influence Lincoln? (I have honestly no idea, besides that his writings were read.)

RE: Stump the German
Not to be confused with the more successful philosopher and revolutionary comedian , Groucho Marx.
Not much written about him and Lincoln.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

RE: Stump the German
The German was not at all stumped.

Congratulations Eva!  Yes!  You immediately recognized Mr. Karl Marx.  You win a complimentary ride on the Prater-Riesenrad!  (oh, you're not excited about enjoying the last rays of summer with the other half of Vienna?)  and a signed copy of Robin Blackburn's 'Marx and Lincoln: An Unfinished Revolution'.  Thank you for participating!
