The Lincoln Conspiracy

This is weird because, well, because it's weird. Also because yr. humble corresp. has been told more than once that he resembles Hugh Laurie.

SPRINGFIELD -- The $150,000-a-year chief of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum has been placed on paid leave after being charged with shoplifting... a boxed DVD set of the Fox TV show "House" from a Target store in Springfield in August.

That follows a previous shoplifting conviction for stealing seven ties from a Macy's department store in Springfield and scuffling with security personnel in February 2007, public records show.

Clearly you're thinking of me circa 1995 or so. Now I'm as hirsute as Hugh Jackman in X-Men and as wrinkly as Hugh Hefner. Gimme another 10 years and I'll look like Robert Earl Hughes.

The coin on that job is 150K?! My application is on its way...

I think you resemble more of a poor man's Ernest Borgnine.
