A Question & A PropositionSo,

by Nathan Hamm on 12/16/2003

A Question & A PropositionSo, the Soviets put up a lot of
statues of Lenin during their tenure. Many of these ended up unwanted.
A couple even found their way to a permanent home in the United States.
One stands in Seattle without any hint of it being a joke. Then there’s this beautiful one
in Dallas.
I ask then, what’s being done with all those statues of Saddam? I’d
imagine there’s a lot of them.
I propose that at least one makes its way to the United States, maybe
to Dearborn, Michigan specifically, to sit forever in a hole in the
ground with a plaque adorned with Ozymandias
