Bring Abe to Lincoln          Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

The city of Lincoln needs to bring Abe back to his home and office, which was the Postville Courthouse. Springfield should not get anything else of Lincoln likeness. Lincoln was the first city to be named after Lincoln. Tell me if you can: Where else is the likeness of Abe in Lincoln, besides LCC, Postville Courthouse? Then you have the watermelon at the old train station.

If Lincoln does get Abe, then make sure that you have signs saying, "Climb at your risk, blah, blah, blah"; or put a fence around Abe and his wagon. That way attorney Bill Bates can sleep at night, instead of getting invitations to sue the city of Lincoln or defending Lincoln itself.
