An anti-nuclear activist rushed the stage while former President Ronald Reagan was giving a speech Monday and smashed a large crystal statue that Reagan had just been given. Pieces of the statue hit Reagan in the head, but he was not hurt. The activist then tried to speak into the microphone as Reagan, appearing angry but unhurt, stood beside him. Secret Service agents quickly grabbed the protester and hustled him away. The 81-year-old Reagan was jostled during the scuffle.

What is wrong with this picture? Former President Ronald Reagan, 81, is standing on a stage in Las Vegas after receiving an award, when a burly man walks up the steps to the right of the stage and then runs for the lectern. The burly man picks up the 2-foot high, 30-pound crystal statue of an eagle that Reagan has just been awarded, lifts it over his head and smashes it to the floor. Shards of glass explode upward, one grazing Reagan's head.
