Bet they’ll have a b-i-g cake!

I recently discovered EarthCam, which trains a live eye on well known locations around the world (Eiffel Tower, Great Wall of China etc). Tonight might be a great time to stop by for a birthday party, as the Statue of Liberty turns 125.  Festivities and fireworks over the harbor are planned. The cameras provide  multiple viewing perspectives. I won’t be home in real time – maybe they’ll provide a link back. Hope so. Happy Birthday, Lady.

Let me rephrase that

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door

Photoshoped? Who cares.

Soon to be replaced with these new and wonderfully inspiring words from the Boreal Narcissus* “This Statue of Liberty was gifted to us by foreign leaders, really as a warning to us, it was a warning to us to stay unique and to stay exceptional from other countries. Certainly not to go down the path of other countries that adopted socialist policies,” Palin said – to cheers from the crowd.Those foreign leaders? They would be the people of France, center of the socialist plague that’s coming to eat your children.
