American Tourist Snaps Finger Off 600-Year-Old Statue in Florence Museum
Hoping to overcome the stereotype of the obnoxious, ignorant American abroad? An unidentified U.S. tourist who snapped a finger off a 600-year-old statue in an Italian museum hasn’t helped the cause.
My comment? In the name of all that's holy, keep Anthony Weiner and his smart phone away from Michelangelo's David, Praxiteles' Hermes and the infant Dionysus, Donatello's Bronze David or Rodin's The Vanquished.

5. Don't touch means don't touch (except for me, I'm special. I'm only gonna...)
People think they are special or the rules don't apply to them. They made that rule especially for the person who broke it.
