Destroying a piece of artwork that shows our history is absurd.  The offending piece should have become the focus of a college course about the subject...

There is MUCH about our history that isn't taught in school.  Like the fact that George Washington was one of the biggest land speculators (the "derivatives" of their day) west of the Appalachians (you can get a short glimpse of some data/research):
http://lehrmaninstitute.org/history/founders-land.html

And that many of our founding fathers were equally involved and irate at the King for signing various treaties which made their investments worthless over night.  Aside from the slavery issues, there are MANY things about the founding of our country which are ignored (at our own peril)....

But smashing stained glass installations resolves nothing and leads to further ignorance (and a lack of respect for any art/self expression).
