The Oscar for best picture was won by "Argo," the true tale of a secret rescue mission in Iran during the Carter administration. It beat out "Lincoln," the story of how black Americans were rescued from slavery. Does this mean Jimmy Carter's stock is on the rise? Nope, but Ben Affleck has certainly become a blue chip player in Hollywood. Politics -- not the Hollywood kind, but the Washington kind -- played a significant role in public perceptions of both films, as well as of a third that was nominated for best picture.

One by one, the sacred cows hit the ground, adroitly tipped over by the best-selling author Steve Berry in his 13th historical novel, "The Lincoln Myth. " Berry, 59, is a Florida-based former attorney and county commissioner turned author whose previous 12 books have sold more than 17 million copies in 51 countries. The sales are a tribute to the author's skill at folding his research into little-known historical puzzles inside murder mysteries starring Cotton Malone, a retired U.S. Justice Department operative turned book-seller.

Dorothea Bache, a homemaker and retired Dorsey Speedway scorekeeper, died of cardiac arrest Friday at the Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air. The longtime Phoenix resident was 82. Born Dorothea O'Brien in Baltimore, she was known as Dot. She lived on Carrollton Avenue as a child and attended Seton High School. As a young woman, she operated an elevator at a building in downtown Baltimore. After her marriage to Robert Glenn Bache Sr., a Carey Street body and fender shop owner, she enjoyed riding a Harvey-Davidson motorcycle with him. While raising her family, she was a weekend scorekeeper at the Lincoln, Dorsey and Westport speedways.

Here's a reveal that should surprise no one: Best Actor Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis, famous for going to any length necessary to flesh out his film roles, actually grew a beard for "Lincoln. " Like he would have worn a fake one? Asked what it felt like to be wearing a beard during filming, a humorously incredulous Day-Lewis retorted, "What do you mean wearing it? Do you wear your hair?" The questions got better after that, as Day-Lewis talked about his initial reticence about playing such an iconic American as our 16th president.

Arthur Hirsch 's recent article about the Battle of Gettysburg reveals a disturbing ignorance of the political dynamics that brought this nation to a war that 150 years later remains the most cataclysmic event in our history ("A defining day relived," July 2). It accepts the shallow but unchallenged premise that the Civil War occurred because slavery was practiced in the South, and that righteous resolve to abolish the institution left the U.S. with no option other than a resort to arms.

I found it meaningful and not coincidental that President Barack Obama, in memorializing the late Nelson Mandela, used the phrase "now he belongs to the ages" ( "Leader rose above hate," Dec. 6). That phrase was also uttered at 7:22 a.m. at the Petersen House across from Ford's Theatre on April 15, 1865 by Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton when President Abraham Lincoln passed away after being shot the evening before. The parallels between Messrs. Lincoln and Mandela are quite striking, and I believe Mr. Obama was emphasizing that fact in his choice of words.

Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address 150 years ago this Tuesday. At 272 words, it is a model of brevity and a testament to Lincoln's political wisdom. He shows us that words can clarify, challenge, inspire. Perhaps most of all, they can stop us in the muck of our political selfishness and prompt us to imagine a country greater than the silly procedural games and hate-filled diatribes that pass for civic discourse these days. Last April, I visited Gettysburg National Military Cemetery on a field trip with my college students.

The greatest words any American ever said were spoken by a gaunt, war-haunted man in a tiny Pennsylvania college town 150 years ago Tuesday. The celebrated orator Edward Everett had spoken first, a gusty address that began with a nod toward "this serene sky, overlooking these broad fields now reposing from the labors of the waning year," and wheezed to a close two hours later with a reference to "the glorious annals of our common country....

Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field, Chicago's Soldier Field and Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., are the finalists to host the 2015 to 2018 men's lacrosse championships, the NCAA announced Wednesday. Notably absent was the state of Maryland; Baltimore has hosted the event five times in the past decade. The NCAA said this summer that in response to declining attendance at the event, it would consider holding the event at smaller venues , but Wednesday's announcement indicates that it will continue to hold the championships at NFL stadiums.

ON Nov. 19, 1863, with the Civil War only half over and the worst yet to come, Abraham Lincoln delivered a speech now universally regarded as both the most important oration in U.S. history and the best explanation -- "government of the people, by the people, for the people" -- of why this nation exists.We would expect the history of an event so monumental as the Gettysburg Address to be well-established. The truth is just the opposite. The only thing scholars agree on is that the speech is short -- only 10 sentences -- and that it took Lincoln less than five minutes to stand up, deliver it and sit back down.
