Dan the Miner Drama: What's Taking So Long?

Where be poor, halved Dan the miner and where is the community outrage that he is not back on his rock? Readers will recall that the Carthay Circle seven-foot bronze statue was stolen and cut in two by thieves back in February. And then there were some ownership concerns. Here's what a representative from City Councilman Jack Weiss' office says: "He is still undergoing repairs and restoration. When he is ready to be reinstalled I will let you know." Who knows how long it takes to re-attach a pair of bronze legs to a torso, but this delay seem suspicious. God, we hope city officials haven't melted Dan down to help pay off the deficit. UPDATE: Here's a recent LA Now blog post on the thieves that stole Dan.
