History Lesson Re: Boston Herald Front Page, 7/20/06

The centerpiece of London's Trafalgar Sqaure is, of course, the gigantic pillar upon which sits the statue of the admiral who that famed battle, Lord Horatio Nelson.

Underneath two centuries of pigeon poop, the monument contains no, repeat, no mention of Nelson's celebrated affair with Lady Emma Hamilton.

Nobody's personal life is inscribed on the Vince Lombardi Trophy, either.
