Given the abundance of Lincoln statues in Springfield, IL, you won't mind one more, will you? "A bronze, nine-foot statue of Abraham Lincoln, bracing himself against the wind, will [soon] adorn the southeast corner of Union Square Park across Sixth Street from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum."
Nothing succeeds like excess.
"[Sculptor] McClarey, 70, said his sculpture reflects Lincoln's two most dominant leadership traits - his openness and toughness."
Those of us who think of AL as secretive and weak will have to wait. But at the rate statues are going up - something like the rate at which an infinite number of monkeys hit an infinite number of typewriter keys - it may not be long before the proper, Shakespearean depiction emerges.
