A Few Local Options to Replace the Lost Kennedy Bust of El Presidio Park

Posted By on Wed, Dec 18, 2013 at 12:30 PM

Last night, Weekly Web Lord Henry Barajas noted that the bust of John F. Kennedy appears to have been stolen from Downtown's El Presidio Park, and offered his suggestion for a replacement: President Barack Obama.



Now, I'm not necessarily disputing Henry's claim that Barry O is the best President that we've ever had, but I'm fairly certain that there's a sizable portion segment of Arizona's population that would regularly practice sledge hammer use on an Obama bust.



So, to keep the City and various potential bust donors from throwing their money away like sand into so many potholes, here's a quickly brainstormed list, without comment, of Tucsonans (and Tucsonans) we could bust-ify instead of Obama:


- Linda Ronstadt



- Lisa Frank



- Jim Click



- Jim "God" Anderson



- Jim Nintzel



- The Militant Baker



- Lenny Mental



- Chris Edwards



- For that matter, the dude Chris Edwards appeared with in that Pooping In Reverse video.



- Former Mayor Bob Walkup



- Lute Olson, the real Mayor for most of Walkup's term.



- Al Perry, who's probably considered the mayor by more people than either Walkup or Lute, honestly.



- A joint feature of Miss Peggy Barclay and Mr. Tom "Tiger" Ziegler, because there's no way that anyone would deface a statue of Tucson's most beloved bartenders, right?



...But really, we should probably put a JFK bust back there. At least that one won't get horribly vandalized. Again. Probably.



Any other suggestions, Tucson?
