    Move over, St. Louis arch. There's a new architectural icon in town.

    Reuters reports that an eight-foot statue of rock 'n' roll icon and pioneer Chuck Berry was approved to stand in the city, despite some opposition from local residents. One opponent of the statue said that Berry should not be honored because he is a "felon and not a friend of women."

    The statue is scheduled to be installed later this week. It will be officially dedicated at a July 29th ceremony the 84-year-old Berry will attend in person.

    What do you think of a Chuck Berry statue to be installed in St. Louis?
