A bi-centenary and the election of a certain President also from Illinois and with the same groundbreaking credentials has made Abraham Lincoln the man of the moment.
Lincoln was born two hundred years ago. Happy birthday Abe! But why are we in the 21st century still obsessed with this 19th-century man? We find Abe everywhere from advertising to political punditry. What does this popular Abe have to do with the historical Abe? 21st-Century Abe has six months to tackle these questions
This one’s pretty obvious, but Sufjan’s nod to Abe makes me pretty happy.
