Since 2007, there has been a 25 foot sculpture of a sailor kissing a nurse called “Unconditional Surrender” next to the Midway Museum here in San Diego. Originally it was loaned to the city for a year. The loan has been renewed a number of times, but the time expired at the end of last month and the sculpture was packed up and shipped off to New Jersey for maintenance. It will then be loaned to another city. The rumors are that the museum has raised enough money to get a permanent replacement. Either way, it was kind of cool to see the statue, all taken apart and on a truck as we were driving down the freeway last week. That was the last thing I expected to see!
