Government with a splash of humor

The Illinois board of tourism created this video in honor of Abraham Lincoln and the attention he will be receiving at the Academy Awards this evening as a result of the Spielberg film.

It’s a bizarre film by any standards but even more so considering it comes from a governmental agency responsible for bringing tourists to their less-than-touristy state.

Government is so often devoid of humor. I love it when someone working in the bureaucratic machine manages to be creative.
