Motherfucker, nobody can take any city seriously unless their subways run 24 hours a day. If not, you just a nice little town.

It's hard to think of another American city with so deep an inferiority complex that a similar statue would be hidden for 24 years out of a desire to "raise the standards of the city."

An actual great city like London or New York -- or even Edinburgh or Cleveland -- would never have hidden the statue in the first place. Once you start doing things to convince everybody how great you are, you've already lost the argument for your own greatness.
