I came across a picture on a friend's Facebook page this morning, and it made me laugh. Not that the circumstances surrounding the renovation of the Chief Black Hawk statue in Oregon are funny, but just that the attempts to protect him have him looking like he's living life on the Dark Side. 

Sadly, Chief Black Hawk is in bad need of repairs. Money has been raised to renovate this historical monument, but restoration has been put on hold due to differing opinions on how to repair the 105-year-old statue. Chief Black Hawk's black covering is meant to protect him from further damage from the elements, but in the meantime he's looking like a pretty awesome tribute to the death of Carrie Fisher.

What do you think? Is Darth Vader now watching over the Rock River?
