How'd you like to be the Associated Press correspondent assigned to cover the Gettysburg Address -- the biggest assignment of your lifetime -- and you forget to take notes?

Turns out, that happened.

This week, the modern-day version of The AP reports that a 21-year-old freelancer hired to cover the events in Gettysburg in November 1863 became "star-struck" and stopped taking notes. Thus, we're not really sure what President Lincoln said that day.

By the way, did you see the story about the newspaper in Pennsylvania that has apologized for and retracted an editorial criticizing the Gettysburg Address back in 1863?

Can't make this stuff up, folks.
