… an iPhone.
This statue of Alonzo Horton stands outside Horton Plaza, a shopping mall named for the nineteenth century real estate developer responsible for the location of downtown San Diego. Like his other statue at Balboa Park, this statue has been vandalized by scrap metal thieves. Horton was once depicted holding a map of downtown San Diego, but that’s since been sawed out of his hand and (presumably) melted down for scrap.
I’m sure I’m not the only person who’s ever had the uncontrollable impulse to put an iPhone in his empty hand. Or to make the horrid “Horton Hears…” quip.
