Annoy at will
Jerks to soon get reprieve in Michigan city
It's soon expected to be okay to be willfully annoying in Grand Rapids, Mich. The Grand Rapids Press reports that the City Commission is nixing a 38-year-old section of city code that states "no person shall willfully annoy another person." City Attorney Catherine Mish recommended repealing the language, saying the wording is "unconstitutional in terms of being vague" and "simply unenforceable." A final decision is expected March 11. Mish has been scouring city code to find archaic rules.
Star is heading East
Massive Monroe statue on the move
A massive statue of Marilyn Monroe that has turned heads for two years in Palm Springs is headed east. The Riverside Press-Enterprise says the 26-foot-tall, 34,000-pound statue will be transported in April from California to Hamilton, N.J., where it will be part of an exhibit honoring its designer, Seward Johnson. A going away party, open to the public, is planned for March 27. The sculpture depicts Monroe trying to push down her billowing skirt in her memorable scene in the Seven Year Itch.
