Today would have been Abraham Lincoln's 199th birthday, and though I forgot to buy him something nice I did visit the Historical Society for festivities. What constitutes "festivities" is a matter of opinion, but hey: here's a mold of Lincoln's face!
Irony #1: To celebrate Lincoln's birthday they displayed a replica of his casket. Irony #2: To celebrate Lincoln's life they held festivities on the site of another president's assassination. Irony #3: A Lincoln impersonator re-enacted the Gettysburg Address in front of people dressed as Confederate soldiers. They applauded.

I got an awesome head shot of Lincoln from the balcony!

THAT'S more realistic.
