Win a Wall

Usain Bolt, the stunningly fast Jamaican won himself a brace of medals at the World Championships this week in Berlin. In addition to all the gold medals the city fathers have given him a section of the Berlin Wall. A three ton section. Do you think that they are keeping whats left of the Wall in a warehouse somewhere, breaking off chunks as needed? Little chunks for souvenirs, big chunks for great honors?

The Berlin Wall is becoming a bit like the True Cross (of Jesus fame) - eventually someone will calculate that if all the pieces of the Berlin wall were collected it would form a 10 foot wall encircling the earth.
