Finally Back To Normal!

I'd link to the story, but it's on the Crudicle's front page, and likely to change soon.

Sculptor David Adickes repaints the mustache on his 36-foot-high statue, The Virtuouso, at the Lyric Centre downtown today. Building management had the mustache painted black in March, infuriating Adickes. Today, the artist was hoisted in a cherry-picker, paid for by U.S. Property Management, who still refused to comment, and returned the mustache to its original white.

Finally! I've had to ride by this thing every day since it was defaced! Glad to see it's back to normal.
