The political season is upon us.  I don’t really like it and I’m not much of a follower of it all.  But, I came across this image I took at Thomas Jefferson’s memorial in DC and it got me to wondering.  Without going to your iPhone or Wikipedia, what was his political party?  Why, exactly, did someone feel a need to memorialize the man (wasn’t he a slave owner?) with such an elaborate and surely expensive (and beautiful) work of art?  I mean is there an Adams memorial?  Or Jackson or Monroe? No.  But, Thomas Jefferson… it does seem to roll off the tongue.
