Where in Gods name did she get that kind of skill from? Is this how you celebrate America’s Independence? Kinda wish it ended up as if a watermelon fell off of Lady Liberty...!!!

The moron put the lives of responders at risk. I agree that the sound of splat would have been well earned.

What's almost as bad is that the local media gave her a microphone to explain why she did it.

Putting others in danger to rescue your butt happens all the time & I never hear that they need to pay for the resources they wasted.

She didn't even get that high up. When I kept hearing about the woman climbing the Statue of Liberty, I was picturing a woman on the torch or near the head.

When I looked at the picture of her at the base of the statue ..I noticed for the first time, that Lady Liberty is wearing shoes..

I just imagined her barefoot or in sandals...

Growing up I always heard Morton'e toe called "greek toe". And being that the Statue of liberty has a design that harkens back to greek statues, both in the shape of her face and her dress (robes, sandals), I bet the toe is by design. If she was really a greek statue, she'd be sans robe and sandals. And she would be every kid in New York's favorite field trip.

Stu the greeks were konwn for the treatment of robes in sculptures "off the day." Granted the robes were used to accentuate the human form especially the female form. They were renowned for their skill in depicting drapery.  I was art history student at Queens University years ago. 

Speaking of Statue of Liberty, Jim Acosta v. Stephen Miller is worth a watch. Acosta qoutes inscription added after delivery of Statue, immigrants blah blah blah, Miller schools him on the history.
