Ronald Reagan Returns to Full, Upright Position
Ronald Reagan is back at Bonita Canyon Sports Park in Newport Beach--and this time he wants blood.
Actually, it's a statue of the Gipper that has risen from the ashes--and to its full and upright position--after the city paid $6,500 to repair the bronze figure that was bent by would-be Dutchnappers last November.
That's not all the city has done to keep the statue intact. As Newport Beach Patch reports, surveillance cameras have been installed to prevent future crimes against the piece.
Meanwhile, there's still a $5,000 bounty for the head of the baddie who bent Reagan in the first place--and, no, that's not a reference to GE, Ed Meese or Nancy Reagan.
