"America," the aide replied.Meanwhile, on the comic pages, the mischievous bull terrier who is the protagonist in "Mother Goose & Grimm" (which appears in The Sun) was dumping the litter box of his feline nemesis Attila into a trash can emblazoned with the instructions "Put Litter Here."

In the end, money was deemed more American than comic-book hero Captain America or a poster featuring the Stars and Stripes. At least that's what judges in yesterday's CitySand 2002 sand sculpture contest thought. The 14th annual contest, held at Harborplace, asked local architectural and design firms to craft odes to America out of sand. GWWO Inc. of Baltimore won first prize from the judges for its depiction of a $1 bill. "We were sitting around a conference room brainstorming and someone threw a dollar on the table," joked Paul Hume of GWWO.
