BREAKING: Lincoln Memorial Vandalized

Apparently someone felt that the Lincoln memorial was missing something. That it lacked a certain finesse.

The Washington Times reports:

U.S. Park Police say green paint was thrown on portions of the Lincoln Memorial in downtown Washington, D.C., either late Thursday night or early Friday morning.

A patrol officer found the green-paint splattering about 1:20 a.m., CBS reported. The paint can be seen on the floor and at the base of the statute, which depicts our nation’s 16th president sitting in a chair.

All sarcasm put aside, it’s sad to see a day when people lack respect for the great leaders of our past and the property of others.
