  1. Embarrassing fact about Brussels nr 1: the most famous statue we have is a little boy urinating.

    Embarrassing fact about Brussels nr 2: the presently most talked about statue we have is one of a guy whose fame relies on little more than having lots of muscles.

    When are we going to have a statue of someone actually deserving one? I got nothing against Van Damme, but other than his muscles there's not much special about this guy. Having "made it" in Hollywood is not exactly an achievement to be proud of given how bad most Hollywood films are.

    Toots Thielemans turned 90. Now here is a real Bruxellois that deserves every praise!
