Nudity in the Nation's Capitol

A couple of years ago a brand new Congressman came to town with his family to assume his seat in the House of Representatives. Not long after arriving, he stated how horrified he was by all the naked statuary in the city. He was appalled that his young children and those of other, God-fearing Americans were exposed to such indecency. Christmas day, driving home from my mother's in Southern Maryland, we got caught up in heavy traffic on Constitution Avenue. Glancing up through our sunroof, this is what I beheld. Shocking!!

Nude men -- and -- women -- together -- with -- their -- privates -- exposed!! Not only that, but they were carved in stone -- on the front of -- a government building!!! Thank goodness they are high enough off the ground that innocent children's eyes cannot behold such subversive matter. Why, there is not even one fig leaf to provide a modicum of modesty! Whatever shall we do?! This sort of thing is to be expected in Rome or Athens, but in Washington, D.C. . . .?!!! ;-}
