Day 363/365 - I Feel Like Bustin' Loose...

...bustin' loose. Gimme the beat y'all!

This statue by Michael Lantz is entitled "Man Controlling Trade." It was sculpted in 1942 and, along with its twin, it bookends two sides of the headquarters of the Federal Trade Commission in Washington, DC. But to me, as I near the completion of my 365 project, this statue instead brings to mind a song by another Washington institution -- the Godfather of Go-Go, the Dean of the DC Music Scene, Mr. Chuck Brown!
