I’m proud to announce they just unveiled the Ace Backwords Memorial Statue in the local town square. Beats being burned in effigy. “Portrait of the Artist as an Old Alcoholic Bum.” I said a few words at the commerative event. Thanked all the little people who made this honor possible. Warned the pigeons about pooping on me. The mayor gave me the key to the city. And the cops have me a drinking in public ticket. It was a grand occasion and I was duly honored.
