Characters down!

A reporter friend called me live from the scene about 10-15 minutes ago to say all the characters are finally down at the gate and on the memorial building itself.

I heard the crowd, which was cheering and very happy.

He said that as the construction workers were removing each nail on the final character at the gate, they would turn around and held hold it up to show the crowd, which cheered. As they finished and were coming down from their raised platform, they also waved at the crowd which again cheered them.

That phone call really made my day. :) Between tonight and tomorrow, and I imagine tomorrow, the new characters for Liberty Square will go up, as will the characters showing the renaiming of the hall.
