The statue is missing too but it is not totally gone. It has been sitting down at the DPW for years and surprisingly as we have our Centennial no one seems to be interested in restoring it to its proper place.

The Gift Shop in the old Roseland Park.

I bought a tin of cigarette loads there when I was 10 and snuck them in people's cigarettes (everyone smoked back then)

No one thought it was as funny as I did.

I almost bought my grand daughter some rubber dog poop a few weeks ago. For some reason neither her mom or her grandma thought it was funny.

Civility.
The more the government protects people from their own stupidity, the more stupid people survive to make more stupid people.

Just because you're right, doesn't mean you're not wrong.
