That's not right

I was looking for an image of Abraham Lincoln to use on a display at work (2009 marks the bicentennial of his birth, in case you hadn't heard) and came across this colorized picture. It's sensitively done and probably gives us a good idea of what the man looked like in real life -- and yet I'm kinda wigged out. Lincoln belongs in sepia tones, not color.

My favorite Lincoln quotation: "My best friend is the man who'll get me a book I ain't read."

I agree. That's oddly f'd up enough to freak me out.
