A fitting epitaph to the inanity of our times.

There are more than forty individuals who have been placed in the Hall of Famous Missourians. From Mark Twain and Harry Truman to General John J. Persing and Josephine Baker.

But only one, just one has been provided with a security camera to protect the security of his sculpted visage.

No, not Dred Scott, Walter Cronkite or Omar Bradley.

No, only this guy.

The Missouri House has spent more than $1,100 in taxpayer money on a security camera to keep watch over a new bronze bust of conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh.

So if you want to go to Jefferson City, Missouri and pretend to bowl with Scott Joplin’s bust you’ll have time to pick up the spare. But touch the Oxycontin Kid and they’ll be on you before you can say it looks about 50 pounds too light.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
