YAHOO! DOES IT AGAIN! It runs this story about an intern who discovered two "letters" from Abe Lincoln -- and the most popular comment with almost a thousand thumbs up says it all:

Well, that's all very nice, but WHAT THE HELL DO THEY SAY!!! [SIC]

Chicago's Sun-Times reports that

the papers, which bore no signature or date, were part of a legal case out of Christian County, which is southeast of Springfield. Lincoln appears to have written two pages of notes while preparing a petition he filed in March 1844, some two years before the prairie lawyer was elected to Congress.

Still, ya gotta give Yahoo! credit once more for outstanding reporting!
