We love impersonators here at DB/DO . What amazes us most is that they’re like crazy method actors who stay crazy for the rest of their lives. We once got into a conversation with a Lincoln impersonator during an election cycle who wanted to know our views on States Rights. When he realized we were lost, he accused us of being supporters of Douglas !! Now if that doesn’t get a big old mid-western “Gosh Darn”, then we don’t know what will.
We think that Presidents Day is rightfully your day, impersonators!!! For this week is the only week during the year where putting your lives passion into interpreting the lives of two men who lived over two centuries before you makes some type of legitimate sense. Kind of.
