Look on my Works ye Mighty, and despair!

Boggles the mind...

Our own personal Terminator, Kaiser Schwarzenegger, leader of the land of Kuleeforneeya, has disappointed worshipful volk in his hometown of Graz, Austria. They will not, I repeat, not be building the 80-foot statue of "him" after all. They're also considering re-re-naming the stadium bearing his name. His offense? (Humming Jeopardy music ...)

Ding! Ding! Ding! Time's up. His offense? Supporting George W. Bush.

It seems Maria is not the only one cutting Ahnuld off. Mother Uni-verse is no longer amused.

The brief article

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said -- "two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert ... near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lips, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings,
Look on my Works ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

Percy Bysshe Shelley

And thanks for playing. ;-)
