Phineas Gage Update

Folks, you know I'm a Phineas Gage fan from my previous post (back in June of last year) about this fella and his brain injury, and you might think, "Jake, he's been dead more that 100 years, what's there more to say?"

Plenty, as it turns out. A couple just turned up the photo of him and his "lucky" tamping rod. Read all about it in this month's Smithsonian Magazine!
