The History Channel re-aired "April 1865" on Sunday.

It had been awhile since I'd seen it. A couple things. One, it's still really good. For some reason I forgot that my favorite "historian" (read: sarcasm) Thomas DiLorenzo said a few words.

Secondly, (and how it ties into this thread) Jean Baker was also on the show. She talked mostly about James Buchanan. Sure enough, she's the one that talked about his personal life the most, including the fact that he was our only bachelor President and that he may have been homosexual. Funny that she mentioned there wasn't overwhelming evidence with him, but the whole "Lincoln" program, you would have thought she was convinced that he was gay, even with LESS evidence.

If she has some kind of agenda, it would appear that Mr. Buchanan does not qualify enough, but since everyone knows Lincoln, he will suffice even more.

I hope in the future that the History Channel will sever their ties with Ms. Baker.
