Lopsided Lincoln?

Weekly Reader News - Senior;9/21/2007, Vol. 86 Issue 3, p2
The article focuses on a discovery regarding the face of former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. Two doctors used bronze and plaster copies of masks of Lincoln's face and created a 3-D image on a computer so they could study his bone structure. They found that Lincoln had a defect called cranial facial microsomia, which makes it look like he is raising his left eyebrow quizzically, or questioningly, in some photos. It states that the defect resulted in a loss of coordination between his eyes.
