Life imitates old Simpsons episodes

And here I always thought Garfield hated Mondays, not Fridays:
Officials at Ohio's Hiram College said a statue of President James Garfield was decapitated only hours after its dedication ceremony.

The officials said the 95-year-old sandstone statue of the 20th U.S. president, who was assassinated in 1881 before completing a full year in office, was dedicated Thursday at the college's Garfield Institute for Public Leadership and the head of the monument was noticed missing the next morning, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Monday.
Having been executed more than a hundred years ago, Charles Guiteau is probably not considered a suspect in the crime.
