    "The statue, dedicated in 1993, is the work of Jesse Pitts, a Shreveport native who attended B. T. Washington High School. "

    Yahoo.com wins over Google ;-)

    Well, the success of a search has a lot to do with the (accidental) relationship of the search terms and the search engine.

    In my case, I happen to be used to the way that Yahoo thinks...for better or for worse...
