RIP, Touchdown Jesus

by folkbum

From the AP:
Police say a six-story-tall statue of Jesus Christ with his arms raised along a southwest Ohio highway has been struck by lightning in a thunderstorm and has burned to the ground.

The "King of Kings" statue had stood since 2004 at the evangelical Solid Rock Church along Interstate 75 in Monroe, just north of Cincinnati.
The Touchdown Jesus plays an important role in the opening lines of one of my better songs, as a geographical marker; I'll have to decide now to keep it or find some other reference.

For now, though, let us all just take a moment of silence to reflect on what Touchdown Jesus has meant to our lives.
