Bicentennials are for stunts

How better to celebrate the Lincoln Bicentennial than with stunts performed for the Guiness Book of World Records?

And speaking of stunts, the commisars in Illinois have been revising their state history to eliminate any mention of Stalin, er, Blago:
State agencies have removed Blagojevich’s name and photograph from all state government stationery, walls, signs and any other visible reminder.
One media politruk says this does not go far enough:
Considering Illinois’ new determination to rid itself of its nationwide image for corruption in state government, it is time to ask once more: Why does George Ryan’s name remain etched into the wall of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library?
Obliterating Illinois state history could become a major economic stimulus project.
