BETTER THAN A GARDEN GNOME: Somebody put a copy of Michelangelo's David in his garden. Well, we might discuss whether the thing looks better in Florence than standing out among the rhododendrons in Suburbville, USA. But the good burghers are worried.
Parents of students who attend a neighboring center that provides services for disabled people had expressed concern over the statue's nudity.

Did they think the statue might get cold at night? No, something worse:

At first, none of the children at the center noticed the statue. Once it was pointed out, it became the source of much discussion, said Rosemary Durbin, whose young daughter spends her days at the Evansville ARC Center.

Little Miss Durbin evidently found this subject to be more interesting than the usual stuff on the kindergarten syllabus.
