BWstaffers had an interoffice debate over sculptor Irene Deely's
Liberty, Let's Roll. Some felt the massive statue depicting Lady Liberty lifting her skirts with a side kick was showing the United States as an aggressor. Others said it showed that freedom is an ideal worth fighting for, something those of us whose jobs are based on the First Amendment can get behind. The public agreed. Deely took the statue on a cross-country tour to visit its inspiration in New York. Along the way, there were crowds, celebrations and a whole lot of warm, fuzzy patriotism.
