I am watching the CNN news. White House key speaker is making an announcement that the Statue of Liberty is going to be dismantled. President Bush has caused a riff with the French government, and the Prime Minister announces they are happy to see it taken down, but would like it returned to their country. Engineers are already on site, and scaling scaffolding that has been set up around the statue. They are being guarded by the Army. The first thing the engineers are removing are the points of her crown.
