The Vulcan

If you ever visit Birmingham, Alabama, be sure to visit the big Greek statue of the so-called god of the forge, Vulcan that overlooks the the largest city in Bama! We were expecting perhaps Spock, but instead we found a bearded fellow with a naked behind. As Blake commented, the Greeks were quite fond of naked bottoms.

You have to pay a fee to get to the top of the statue and to go into the Vulcan Museum, but we passed on the fee and we could see the city quite nicely at Vulcan's feet. On a clear day you can see quite far. After talking about it, as a fasily we like the Star of Roanoke far better than the Vulcan of Birmingham!

No Spock's rear!
