    That picture of the Wright Flyer is amazing. Never seen it before.

    Couldn’t care less about the statue though.

    Soon after, New Yorkers lives would be forever transformed by this new food source, the bay-gull.

    However, if you ask her, she won’t admit she’s a day over 99.

    125 years of occupying Liberty Island. But seriously, what’s her ‘message’?

    It is ironic that exactly 125 years ago, on a wind-swept island in the middle of New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty was dedicated. For the very best tribute that we could have EVER given to commemorate this anniversary are the brave efforts of hardy Occupy Wall Street participants, who are “standing watch” just a few miles away, ….and whose spirit is spreading all across the country!  If  Lady Liberty  could speak , she would surely say THANK YOU OWS. Thank you   for renewing and strengthening the ideals of freedom and dignity and liberty…upon which this great nation was founded. All Occupy Wall Street participants, both here in New York, and across the country, should know  –and  remember– this simple fact: With all the hardships and trials that you have been going thru—and will go thru—  you are truly carrying forward the torch of freedom. Lady Liberty would be proud of you! ….WE are proud of you!

    Now I feel old. I remember the Harriers hovering around her for her 100th anniversary.
