Oscar Wilde Tomb is All Clean

The tomb of Irish writer Oscar Wilde is no longer a place to lay kisses. The cleaned and renovated tomb, located in Paris, France, was unveiled on Wednesday. A glass wall has been erected around the tomb in an effort to keep it in tip-top condition.

Wilde was imprisoned for homosexuality and lost his fame and reputation by the time he was released.
