    Very enjoyable show! Especially Michael Moore, we loved his sincerity and down to earth way of thinking. Looking at the name Wattles in his tree, he may be related to my husband Alan Metzler. I think it is either through Clark, or Hoskins on his maternal side. Still trying to make the connection.

    Also in Alan’s ggg grandfather Pollard Simmons were good friends with Abe Lincoln before he became President. Carl Sanburg wrote a short excerpt about them.
