Hey everybody, I am sorry about the lack of posts this week. There are a few weeks to go in the semester and the Hayfoot and I have been busy. The week has been something of a grind.

On the lighter side of things I ask this question: What do FDR, Peter the Great, Crazy Horse, and Martin Luther King Jr. have in common?

Answer: They made Travel + Leisure’s list of the World’s Most Controversial Monuments. Fear not, internationalists among us. Bad taste knows no borders; everywhere from Argentina to Uruguay is here.

Enjoy these misguided homages the good and the great.

FDR: loved the president, the statue, well…
