It never ceases to amaze me... the things we spend our time and money to study. Thankfully, a new AP report on Yahoo has just informed us all that Abraham Lincoln's face was sort of deformed. One side bigger than the other. Wow. Oh... and 150 years later, we have also diagnosed him with depression.
Actually, this startling discovery should make us all let loose with a sigh of relief. Imagine if there had been modern media covering his career. He would never have been president at all. Not photogenic enough. And everyone in the civilized world would have known about the "alledged" depression. Nope, he probably wouldn't have made it past local politics. We value style over substance today. The master of the sound bite wins the day. The guy with the $400.00 haircut.
A modern-day Abe Lincoln could never get elected.
And no... I am not the least jaded toward politics or the media.
But thanks for asking.
