Let's See a Picture of a Metal Monster Perched Triumphantly atop a Pile of Rubble!

The people get what the people want:

I took this picture along 2nd Avenue at 6:30 this morning and a funny thought occurred to me based on past experiences in foreign lands. In many countries, leaving rubble out overnight often serves as an invitation for people to haul it away and build stuff with it. Either that or it would serve as an ammo dump for any group of malcontents who would then turn it into more portable pieces and descend on the closest McDonald's, KFC or unfortified liquor store. These things happen in other parts of the world. In this country, we can proudly display our rubble until it is removed, without people crushing their hands and feet trying to drag it away or without it sparking any angry mob action. Ah, what a country we live in! The threat of prison really does keep us in line!
