Postcard From Liverpool

In Liverpool:

  • Cardinal Sin, a new sculpture by the graffiti artist Banksy, was unveiled at a local gallery. The pixelated bust is a comment on the Catholic sex abuse scandal.
  • The government delays a decision over whether Liverpool will get a new port for cruise ships. Cruises are currently banned, but the city has been running a 'get on board' campaign to bring them back to port.
  • Some lucky schools will get $30 million to revitalize their buildings. The reward is bittersweet though - they were chosen because they are in the worst condition in the county.
  • Liverpool's "cultural 12 days of Christmas" includes "Alice, water pistols, monsters and more," according to the Liverpool Daily Post. Also, a listing for the best events of 2012.
