Sometimes When You Look for Andy Gibb You Find Abraham Lincoln

Screen shot 2014-02-22 at 9.45.33 AMRecently my wife and  I were at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles looking for Andy Gibb's grave. (I'm a fan...don't judge) when we stumbled across a statue and series of mosaics depicting the life and presidency of Abraham Lincoln. This took me a bit by surprise primarily because I have lived in this city for most of my life and I had no idea that these existed. Generally speaking, I would say that these are highly romanticized images of Lincoln in deep meditation or prayer, Lincoln the self-educated, Lincoln the great emancipator, and Lincoln doing presidential stuff like being inaugurated and giving addresses.

I am interested in what you think. We do not get a lot of Lincoln out here on the West what are your thoughts on our spin?
