re: "Awakening"

Allow me to reminisce about one of my former haunts:

One of the genuinely neat features in Washington, D.C. is the sculpture "The Awakening," located at the tip of Hains Point in East Potomac Park:

My friend Tarah let me know that a major D.C.-area developer has purchased the statue, to be reinstalled at a development several miles south on the Potomac River. So it'll still be public art, but in another place (and, I hope, a place where it's less likely to get hit by cars, as mentioned here.) I'm really not convinced it needs a name change -- I mean, a giant named Charlie? Huh? -- but as long as it's still around, I'm happy.
