Tucson's biggest flag waver ~

Here's my Paul Bunyan post from May 30:
This 18-foot Paul Bunyan statue guards the corner of Glenn & Stone.... Currently he is without his ax - stolen, no doubt by some boozed up UA frat boys. Maybe they tried to sell it on ebay... Here's a great story about it:http://tucsoncitizen.com/rynski/2009/11/23/tucsons-paul-bunyan-has-ax-stolen/

And now, happily, I drove by today and see that he is holding a beautiful flag. Pretty impressive public art!


  1. I always wondered if we stole Ole Paul from Northern Minnesota? Maybe that's what happened to his ax - it was repo'd?

  2. Hey there,
    I do know that he's not the only one of his kind. Here's the link that cites all the cities that have a "Paul" statue: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Bunyan

    I'm glad he was "repaired." I wonder who maintains him? I doubt if the City does it.
