I would like to commend the caretakers of the George W. Norris home for removing the tacky stuffed pillow that seemed to be a permanent fixture next to Sen. Norris' statue.
The statue of Sen. Norris is a fantastic representation of a noble and respectable man who accomplished greatness. The stuffed pillow represents a state entity devoid of anything noble or respectable.
I understand the humor behind these pranks and surely there will be items added to the finely crafted statue from time to time. The caretakers should store these items away. In 50 years, there may be enough items to display in a room titled "Companions of the Norris Statue."
Until then, the bric-a-brac should be removed from sight so the statue can be admired for the artistic value it brings to our community.
