Is the story that a Lawrence man reported the damage or is the story the damage? Good Job.

Tell us more about the man who reported the vandalism. Was he black or white? Approximate weight and height? What was he wearing at the time of his report?

"sometime between May 16 and Saturday"... This event gets more mysterious every time I read the article.

My apologies for that unintended juxtaposition.

I love the downtown sculpture program. I agree that a couple are pretty weak almost every year. but the program is stellar.

Did the old man report it on his 1984 Miami Vice style cell phone?

Are the police not sure when the 60 year old man reported the damage.

I know there are contests around the globe for poorly written newspaper articles...this should win top honors to have so much so wrong in so few words.

But it made me smile, so I am not complaining.

If Obama had a damaged sculpture, it would look like this one :)

Can something really be worth that much if no one would buy it with their own money?
