Obviously reluctantly written by overly proud Iowans who wanted to tout his status as 'Iowanite'.
I love this one!
The irony being, of course, that "John Wayne" should have been in quotes... given that it was a monument to Marion Morrison...
If he was a Mexican immigrant, he sure fooled me.
I think this actually is referring to testimony Maureen O'Hara gave in Congress. She was pushing for a medal of honor to be awarded to John Wayne and she asked that it say just one thing "American". So these quote marks may actually be quoting someone! They should have referenced Maureen as the speaker though.
Aren't quotation marks used to delineate the title of a work of art? If so, perhaps the statue is titled, "American."
Erick, in that case, is John Wayne the sculptor?
So funny! Just found your blog. Thanks for the "smiles". Laura in Ludwigsburg, Germany
