(MI) Dearborn Museum Could Get Helen Thomas Sculpture (Not from the Onion)

DEARBORN, Mich. - The Arab American National Museum in Dearborn could land a sculpture of veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas.

Spokeswoman Kim Silarski said Friday the museum, which already displays one of Thomas' vintage typewriters, was approached by former White House photographer Susan Tinsley McElhinney. McElhinney sculpted a clay version of a Thomas bust.

Donations are being sought for the tribute.

Thomas was born to Lebanese immigrants in Winchester, Ky., and raised in Detroit, where she graduated from Wayne State University. The longtime United Press International reporter now is a Heart Newspapers columnist.

Thomas turned 89 on Aug. 4, the same birthday as President Barack Obama. He led a roomful of reporters in singing "Happy Birthday to You."

Can you ‘photoshop’ sculptures? We don’t want to scare the little kiddies do we?

I can’t think of any place more deserving of that statue.

They say this like it is a prize or something.

During the Middle Ages they used to use Helen as a model when they sculpted gargoyles.

that would protect the eyes, either that or give out blinders to visitors with a warning similar to one given out not to look directly at a solar eclipse or your retinas will be damaged and you could go blind.

Can you imagine all the extra sculptor's labor involved in carving all those wrinkles?

Can you say, "overtime"?

“...sculpted a clay version of a Thomas bust.”

Good God, don’t we have enough problems in this world without doing this?

DESPITE being Lebanese she's ugly. Lebanese women are usually gorgeous.

These people really are sick.
