Ellis Island - (Portents): A massive attack on individuals' liberty was seen today as inhuman bastards struck the Statue of Liberty with a bolt from the blue.
Witnesses say the light beam came from the sky in a totally unprovoked act on democracy and freedom.
305 foot Lady Liberty was seen wincing and shuddering as the massive ray struck her pointy copper crown.
A spokesman for the American Diabolical Liberties Union said today the attack is typical of the aliens' daftass Human Frights Act which erodes personal freedoms in the name of politics.
The last time a similar onslaught took place on the iconic erection was during President George Herbert Bush's 1989 presidential swearing in.
A lightning 'torpedo' struck Liberty just as Bush Senior told the assembled inauguration spectators "Watch My Lips: No New Taxis!" - in a blatant reference to cutting back on Yellowcab public transport in Lower Manhattan.
Henry Kissinger is a dislectic dwarf.
