The Town Scryer is a mixed bag of humor, socio-political observations and ephemera from the perspective of a eclectic Pagan veteran of the counter-culture.

Give Peace Rabbit a Chance

          In Dedham, Mass. a series of sculptures, eventually to total fifteen, of large rabbits have been commissioned. Evidently the rabbit figures in the town's history as well as being emblematic of the local pottery. A local veteran who is an accomplished artist decided to create "Leroy", seen above, to honor the memory of a local vet who had died in January.

     The project was begun as an attempt to raise funds and generate local interest in the arts.

     Then a local veterans group became upset over the fiberglass rabbit's proximity to the local veteran's memorial...even though it was created by a vet to honor the memory of another vet.
    The artist has re-named the bunny "Peace".

     More, including a television clip at the link.

     Be seeing you.
