Drapes removed from Justice Department statue. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales makes a good choice!
The drapes [covering Spirit of Justice’s one exposed breast], installed in 2002 at a cost of $8,000, allowed then-Attorney General John Ashcroft to speak in the Great Hall without fear of a breast showing up behind him in television or newspaper pictures. They also provoked jokes about and criticism of the deeply religious Ashcroft.
Alright! That’s progress. Now how do we get the other one uncovered?
