The top of the Capitol looks a bit odd, doesn't it? Along with many other repairs and restoration projects, they are busy doing work on the Statue of Freedom that stands atop it.
At the moment, she is not terribly visible, and unfortunately, I can't blame this all on Obama. Some of this is the inevitable encroachment of the national government on our liberties over the last century or so. Some of it is regrettable, and sometimes not even particularly sensible encroachments caused by the War on Terror. (You do remember that we are still at war, right?) But the Statue of Freedom is at least temporarily invisible up there. We all have an obligation to do something about that.
