Tuesday, two statues of beloved figures whose names start with M drew crowds as they were installed in places I call home.

Moroni and Marilyn

In Palm Springs, a 26-foot-tall Marilyn Monroe settled into her new home in a temporary downtown park.

Over in Gilbert, it was the angel Moroni who was lifted atop a new temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

After a day or so of seeing Marilyn all over my Facebook News Feed, I noticed a photo of Moroni in the afternoon and wasn't all that surprised to learn that the installation in Arizona attracted a similar level of interest as did the one here in California.

@BriNews  What a newsy day… I'm off Friday and Monday, but @MyDesert will keep you up-to-date on the Palm Springs pipe bombs.

@BriNews  Where were these Palm Springs pipe bombs found? I only have approximate locations for most, but they're mapped here: http://t.co/bg8cquZq

@BriNews  #BREAKING: San Rafael Road resident finds yet another possible bomb. @TDSKateM has added details to http://t.co/uYcaAAav

@BriNews  #CVtraffic update: San Rafael, Simms roads have reopened after pipe bombs found nearby were dirsupted, police say http://t.co/OdrSJDLP

@BriNews  Sorry for the recent silence. I was busy getting and writing this interview with the PS man who found those pipe bombs: http://t.co/n2ONKpht

@BriNews  @skellykpsi As I recall, police were sent to Wednesday's spot, but keep in mind, that's a mile away from today's find.

@BriNews  Correction on location reported earlier today: Bomb found Tuesday was near San Rafael Road and Sunrise Way, about a mile from today's find.

@BriNews  If bombmaker is found, that person could face felony charges for making, having and/or leaving bomb somewhere, PS police spokesman says.

@BriNews  It's unusual for someone to find a bomb, much less two in a week's time, but man and son have been very cooperative, police say. No arrests.

@BriNews  Bomb squad has disrupted (not detonated) one possible pipe bomb. Now moving in on another. http://t.co/ZbsgbmNc

@BriNews  Despite bomb squad activity on San Rafael Road just past intersection, #CVtraffic on Indian Canyon Drive still flowing.

@BriNews  Bomb squad calls out, "Fire in the hole," and small, quiet burst heard as robot nears possible bomb on south side of San Rafael Road.

@BriNews  "I would be concerned if it was in a more populated place," Parker said. "That would suggest to me someone was trying to be more maniacal."

@BriNews  C.W. Parker, pastor of nearby Ajalon Baptist Church, says he's not concerned; open area suggests someone just wanted to get rid of bombs.

@BriNews  Possible bombs found on both sides of San Rafael Road and near Sims Road, Palm Springs police spokesman Sgt. Mike Kovaleff said.

@BriNews  "I'm just worried about our undeveloped are because people do walk around there with their dogs," Palermo HOA president says.

@BriNews  "It's kind of mind-blowing," Palermo HOA President Travis Armstrong says after possible pipe bombs found near his neighborhood.

@BriNews  Two possible pipe bombs found today were made of PVC pipe like earlier find; third was made of metal pipe, PS police Sgt. Mike Kovaleff says

@BriNews  "We're going to be looking for more," Sgt. Mike Kovaleff says after three possible pipe bombs found in Palm Springs.

@BriNews  Clarification: Man found first pipe bomb Tuesday; son took it to PSPD Wednesday. He found one more today; police found two others nearby.

@BriNews  Update: Same man who found pipe bomb Wednesday found three similar devices today about 1.5 miles away, police say http://t.co/OdrSJDLP

@BriNews  Also, a reminder of a request police made Wednesday: “If you ever locate a suspicious device, please just call 911.” http://t.co/OdrSJDLP

@BriNews  "If you ever locate a suspicious device, please just call 911," Sgt. Mike Kovaleff says after possible pipe bomb brought to PSPD

@BriNews  "Obviously, he transported it all the way here and it didn't go off, but we're not going to assume anything," Sgt Mike Kovaleff on poss bomb

@BriNews  Contractor couldn't make it, so this week's I-10 roadwork has been called off: http://t.co/gL5d2jaw #CVtraffic

But we really do have more bounce in California…

This song has been stuck in my head since the weekend, when I heard it during a sketch on an old episode of SNL.

Turns out, "(More Bounce in) California" pokes fun at the Golden State, but that didn't stop Californians from making it a stadium anthem (literally) a few years back when the song was newer but I was spending months at a time ignoring California from the other side of the Colorado River.

See, California's a place where we revel in our foibles (and, often, in caricatures of our more serious problems — but that's a whole other story) so it doesn't really matter that the song isn't really meant for us to enjoy; we'll own it anyway.

Not only is Soulkid #1's song stuck in my head; it also inspired a California playlist of 36 songs that cast the state and some of my favorite locales sometimes in flattering terms and other times, not so much.

But hey, without stuff like earthquakes, smog, taxes and especially traffic, what would we Californians have to talk about?
