It’s unclear to me why Paul Bunyan made page 1 of today’s New York Times. But buried in the news story, there is one item that seems worthy of our attention. In Bemidji, MN, there is an 18 foot tall statue of Paul Bunyan. Until 2014, whenever the Shriners came to Bemidji, the Paul Bunyan statue wore a fez. Then the City Council deemed the practice to be undignified. Now, the Shriners have a four foot fez and no suitable head to wear it. (I have often commented on my own grotesquely oversized head, but even I can’t sport a four foot fez). So I’m putting it out for your consideration. Where should the Shriners put their four foot fez?
