    somebody stole the head off Nikola Tesla's statue :(

    The bronze bust of Nicola Tesla was taken from the Serbian Cultural Garden in Rockefeller Park on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

    The statue is roughly two feet high by two feet wide. It was taken from atop a granite pedestal in the garden.

    Detective Jennifer Ciaccia says there were no eyewitnesses to the crime, and that the bust is hollow on the inside, and is not solid brass. However, there is concern that whoever took the bust might try to sell it at a scrap yard.

    Here's hoping they made a plaster cast of the artwork, so a sand mold can be made and a recasting done.

    There's a WTAM in Cleveland, OH. Is that the location?

    Nice one, AB!!

    "Hedison" is the best part.

    Milli says she thinks this is very cute. Personally, I am jealous of your talent and think you have way too much time on your hands.

    I applaud your creative intelligence, even if it presents itself as a Limerick.
