Letter: No fan of sculpture then, and no fan now

I had to laugh when I saw the letter from Tawny and Bob Barnett (6/19/13). I originally wrote a letter to the Almanac when this "pile" was erected in the mid 90s! And yet, here it still sits. I'm thankful my daily route does not take me past this eyesore! I was at Lyngso Garden Supply recently and saw a similar "installation."
