somewhat topical

Adam Gopnik, one of my faves, published a thoughtful article, Twin Peaks, in the February issue of Smithsonian Magazine about the incredible influence that Darwin and Lincoln, coincidentally born on the same day, have had on our modern world. It's a lovely tribute and reminder of their humanity. I should also point out two other great articles in the issue: Thomas Hayden's, What Darwin Didn't Know and Philip B. Kunhardt III's, Lincoln's Contested Legacy.
