Udate on the Mary Stain

A few weeks ago, I posted an article about salt stains on the wall of an underpass along the Kennedy Expressway in Chicago that supposedly formed an image of Mary. I suppose Mary is besy described as a cloud in that regard--things just always seem to take her shape in the monds of the excited multitudes.

In any case, after Victor Gonzalez wrote "Big Lie" across the image, the highway authorities painted over that area of the wall. But then Rosa Diaz and Anna Reczek took it upon themselves to remove the paint that so as to reveal the image again.

Gonzalez was charged with criminal damage to state property. Oddly, Diaz and Reczek were not.
