(Newser) – It's unlikely to make it into any "Visit Miami" promotional material, but the site where one man chewed off another's face last month has become the city's newest tourist attraction. The crime scene on the MacArthur Causeway off-ramp has been added to the "Mystery & Mayhem" bus tour conducted by a Miami-Dade College history professor, which includes stops at Al Capone's house, and the site of the attempted assassination of Franklin Roosevelt. "Horrible as it was, it is part of our history," the professor tells the South Florida Business Journal. “Currently, our tour takes us over the causeway right past the site, so this fits well."

Thing people want to see when they visit Dallas is where JFK was shot. But then, in Dallas there is not much else to see but shopping malls.

This spot in Miami is not nearly as grotesque and bloody as the State Capitol in Wisconsin. Last night, the Democratic Party and Labor Unions were brutally beaten, raped, bloodied and maimed in plain sight of the entire nation. Truly it was a crime of horrific proportions.... but it was very fun to watch!!
