There was a program on public TV a few years ago about the"Iron Horse". It
was a welded piece of sculpture created by an artist on a college campus in
the 50's. The male students, mostly the football team, tried to destroy it by
setting it on fire. They were upset that it had been installed near their
dorm. The video does a good job of showing the people involved, their
actions, the reactions and the results.
