Artist Meredith Corson puts the finishing touches on a sand sculpture of the White House behind the Bilmar Beach Resort in Treasure Island, Fla., Aug. 23.

Let’s hope this is as close as Mitt Romney gets to a White House.

Limbaugh was inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians last week, in a closed-door ceremony. The Hall includes statues and busts of the Show-Me State’s most illustrious citizens: Harry S. Truman, Walt Disney, Stan Musial. Limbaugh’s is the only one with a dedicated camera. Republican legislative leaders were worried about vandalism, Clerk Adam Crumbliss told the Associated Press.
“We recognize that there was a level of controversy around it, and we want to make sure that property is protected,” Crumbliss told the AP. “We’ve had lots of calls, and some calls and complaints have been a little beyond the pale.”
Assistant House Minority Leader Tishaura Jones told the AP she thought the taxpayer money had better places to go.
“If they thought that the bust might be defaced or vandalized and they have to guard it with a camera, it’s another indication that maybe they shouldn’t have put it there,” said Jones, D-St. Louis. “It’s another chapter in this never-ending saga of this man who deserves no honor in the people’s house.”

Kansas. Across from the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, artist John Salvest has used 117 shipping containers to create a 65’ high structure reading “IOU”. On the other side, not shown here, it says “USA”. The installation piece has generated a lot of discussion, resonating with many people and angering others. The bank is not commenting.
