I was reading "An NYU admission application" in MaxQ's Humouresque page, and came across the line: " I
enjoy urban hang gliding." It reminded me that there was an item in the news last night about a power-parachute enthusiast colliding with the Statue of Liberty, but being able to climb to safety, leaving his flying machine draped over the torch holding arm.
So let's hear some opinions, should the perpetrator get a citation, or a medal?

Sombody is going to have to pay for the cost of getting what's left of the machine down off the torch.That could run into money, as the monkey said when he pissed into the cash register.

How about a little game of thinking up the charges that could be brought against him.

How about "Defacing a public monument" ?
