Today is Benito Juarez’ 203rd birthday.  His statue stands in every Mexican town, but this one in Washington, D.C. shows what an astute and prescient guy he really was — or the sculptor.  Enrique Alciati’s monument, unveiled during the first Nixon administration, stands in front of the Watergate Complex.  Juarez, a good country lawyer, and nobody’s fool, is shown with an accusing finger pointed towards the White House.
