      The Picasso is goofy but it grew on people. The Bean is cool. This thing will always be just stoopid, that’s my prediction.

      I like the equestrian statue of US Grant better than all the nutty modern stuff.

      Is that Daley’s eye? Better than some other part of his anatomy, I suppose.

      I wonder how this will age? That’s always a feature of public art that is hard to predict and so impacts the appearance. A little fading, a little chipping, a little weather-wear-and-tear, and I’m not sure how it will look.

      At any rate, it’s a good depiction of big brother. If only all traffic or police cameras looked like that. It’d be truth in advertising!

      I think it’s only up till Oct. The artist, Tony Tasset, based it on his own eye.
