To see the Jefferson memorial is to see the promise. The injustice of slavery compromised the message of the country’s promise. You have to see the Lincoln memorial to see that wrong rectified, though Abe was, let’s face facts, really truly not in the same league as Jefferson as a thinker or especially a writer. But I guess he didn’t need to be. He had a pretty fat mark to swing at.
