The Weevil Has Landed!

I've reworked my articles about the Boll Weevil Monument and posted them here as pages. You can find the links at the top right of the page, and repeated below. Here's what's on offer:

Birth of a Monument: When and how an unusual monument took center stage in Enterprise, Alabama.
Vandalism & Rebirth: It's been knocked down, but it got up again -- a look at the damage and ultimate destruction of the monument caused by vandals. Never fear -- a replica came to the rescue!
Weevil Woes: The tale of how boll weevils came to Coffee County and took a bite out of the economy.
The Daily Show: The Comedy Central program visited Enterprise to report on the missing weevil. Hilarity ensued (or calamity, depending on your outlook).
