Hasbro is retooling the classic board game Monopoly to add landmarks from various US cities, including Washington. They’re allowing folks to vote on three choices from the District: The Washington Monument, The Lincoln Memorial and The White House. Reducing any one city to a single location seems to me to be a fairly interesting choice to make. Are we more than just the memories of single great leaders? Why not choose the Capitol, which is the house of the people? The Supreme Court, which is the seat of Justice? Union Station, a great transportation hub?
That said I voted for Lincoln.
