by CuriousEater about Great Mexican Restaurant

I and my friends usually went there during lunch. It locates in the Skywalk or you can get in from Capital Square Center exist. They serve Chips dip in tomato sauces before they take the order for free. The price is very reasonable. The food is excellent there too. Chicken strip Fajita, they bring out grill chicken strip on a hot metal plate with grill onion, red & green bell pepper. Hot soft fajita wrap in a foil paper. The Chimi-chilada/Quesada there are also good, they served with mash bean(good touch on the taste) and salad with avocado and other sauce. Some orders serve with yummy whip cream.

"History & Iowa"

by yooperprof

These allegorical figures are from the Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Capitol Hill, and they are the most "controversial" part of the entire "piece." The original designer Harriet Ketcham wanted to have a grouping of the goddess of History giving instruction to the hopeful youth meant to represent the state of Iowa. But as executed by Carl Rohl Smith, History is a sour looking bald androgynous figure who does not deign to notice the kid at "its" side. Many Iowans present and past have not been pleased with this representation. They want History to be more hopeful, and certainly more attractive.

Well. . . I'm a professional historian and I think I can understanding what the artist was trying to convey here. History is NOT a beautiful thing, and History does not necessarily pay heed to the young. it might be easier to accept this piece of sculpture in 2004 than it was in 1896, when it was first unveiled.
