David McCullough's 1776

LINK - Mark over at Right-Minded has given a glowing review to David McCullough's book 1776.

LINK - Dick Eastman reports that DNA may be used to solve the case once and for all. Apparently an Australian firm plans to check the saliva that was used to lick the postage stamps sent to police. Dick links to the story in the Australian newspaper. I'm a little curious to know if Patricia Cornwell's theory is correct.
