Andy's Angles: Jason Miller

Everybody has an opinion on this one.  It's the bust of Jason Miller on Courthouse Square in downtown Scranton.

Actor Paul Sorvino did it.  Does it look like Miller?  Yeah, a little.

Should it be on the square, where the rest of the monuments are dedicated to history and things military?

Mixed feelings.  Miller lived downtown, and that's the center of the arts scene.

Where else would you put it?  University of Scranton, Cultural Center, Everhart Museum at Nay Aug Park?  Miller was a U of S student.

The initial grumbling over the placement has died down, and the bust seems to work here.  Let it be.
