I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD MAKE A THIRD ROCK JOKE: Big Giant Head Found In Hudson Has Marist College Dumbfounded. “The head, cast to look like a stone statue in the style of ancient Greece or Rome, was found bobbing in the river just after sunrise Tuesday. It took about 10 rowers to haul the waterlogged head from the river near the Poughkeepsie college’s boat dock. . . . No one is sure how the mystery head ended up in the Hudson, or even which direction it came from, because the Hudson flows both northward and southward, depending on the tide, with tidal forces sometimes pushing saltwater north from the Atlantic Ocean and freshwater from the river’s source — at Lake Tear of the Clouds in the Adirondacks — flowing south.”
