The Plot Thickens re: Statue of Liberty postage stamp

Bad enough that the forever stamp of the Statue of Liberty contains a huge mistake. The design was not based on the original statue here in New York Harbor, but on a replica that sits in front of the New York-New York hotel in Las Vegas. Now the sculptor of the Statue of Liberty in Las Vegas is suing the U.S. Government.

What irony that the government is being sued by the creator of this appropriation of the original statue. Back in 2011 I wrote first post about this blooper, and how it completed the appropriation of Vegas that helped to turn it from an adults-only gambling den to a family friendly destination. Will keep an eye on how this lawsuit proceeds.
