When I saw The Day's top of fold photo, "Washington closed for business," (Oct. 2), of essential government employees securing the Lincoln Memorial with steel barricades on the open-air mall in Washington D.C. all I could say was, "Thank you, Mr. President."

Heaven forbid someone might get it in their head to throw green paint on Honest Abe and there would be no essential government employee there to stop it.
