An editor took strong exception to my request for
"popular culture" items in the article on the Statue of Liberty. One
of these items was:
"The New York Liberty, New York's professional women's basketball
team, has the Statue of Liberty as their mascot."
The editor said: "The fact that the NY Liberty b-ball team uses the
SoL as its mascot does NOT need an outside citation, for Pete's sake."
Even if true, it's not exactly interesting either.
