Morning Edition on Tuesday, July 23: My Name is Nancy The Journals of Nancy Hanks Lincoln

First of all, I must warn that this book is INTENDED FOR MATURE AUDIENCES due to adult situations.  The second thing I must stress is that this book is a work of fiction.  But for anyone that has passed through or lives in Rutherford County, NC, it certainly could be true, because it is based on historical fact as well as legends that have been passed on through the generations ever since the late 1700's when the story began.

Originally published on Mon July 22, 2013 7:30 am

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. The winner of the Tour de France gets a yellow jersey but let's focus now on the lanterne rouge. That's the term for the guy who finishes last. It translates to red lantern, like that found on the caboose of a train. Yesterday, 36-year-old Canadian Svein Tuft took the honor with his 169th place finish. It turns out that the lanterne rouge is hotly contested. Just finishing brings glory and lucrative appearances. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene with a tale of neither a bird nor a plane. Cecil Stuckless was fixing a Jeep in Salvage, Newfoundland with his son-in-law, who was working under the car. Stuckless told the CBC he was getting a tool when the car suddenly fell. He summoned all his strength and lifted the Jeep just enough to save his son-in-law. Impressive for anybody, let alone a 72-year-old.

Asked if he was Superman, Cecil said: No, I'm not super. I just did what I could.
