Take that, King Daley?Posted: October 1, 2009
The irony in this story made me giggle and snort:
Six people were charged with mob action today for yanking an Olympic banner from the Daley Center’s Picasso statue and tossing it into the “eternal” flame, authorities said.
Oh my. Young people destroying property, in the “real world”. Hardly surprising, considering the growing anti-Olympics sentiment. The perps in their police pictures even look haughty.
The most outrageous thing about this story is the cost of the burned banner, “valued at thousands of dollars”. Why is this banner so damn expensive?
