The Spanish enclave of Melilla, on the Moroccan coast, has taken down the last statue to Francisco Franco on Spanish soil

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-56177819
It was not until 2007 that a Law of Historical Memory was passed that attempted to recognise the suffering of victims of Francoism.

Under that law, symbols of the dictatorship have slowly been removed, including other high-profile statues around Spain.

Elena Fernandez Trevino, of the Melilla assembly, described the removal of the enclave's Franco statue as an "historic day".

She said it was the "only statue dedicated to a dictator still in the public sphere in Europe".
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.

Not quite true. They're changing the overall branding of the product line to Potato Head, but Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head will still be around.

Former US Gymnastics coach John Geddert killed himself just before he was to be arrested on charges of human trafficking and sexual assault. He had connections with Larry Nasser, the disgraced Michigan State doctor serving a lengthy prison term for rape.
