STATUE NEWS: For whatever it's worth, that was not the world's longest-lasting symbol of oppression:

The Marines joined the effort to pull down the Firdos Square statue -- erected last April for the Iraqi president's 65th birthday -- when it became clear a small group of Iraqis would not be able to bring it down on their own.

Saddam was still statue-building only a year ago? Huh.
