Like a Rock - Cancelled

Ok, from Pravda in the Democratic People's Enclave of Madison, comes this.
Quote:
UW-Madison is moving forward on a plan to remove a boulder from Observatory Hill after calls from students of color who see the rock as a painful reminder of the history of racism on campus.

The 70-ton boulder is officially known as Chamberlin Rock in honor of Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president. But the rock was referred to at least once after it was dug out of the hill as a “niggerhead,” a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock.
Since we don't have all the miners in Josey Wales around with their sledges, how would some real-and-fer-certain 18C's solve this problem?
How much FOOM?

Your tax dollars at work, regardless of what happens to the rock it will always be a rock. Since the desire is to replace it with "art" I like JJ's idea.

I like it. Then we find out from the trans who has manifold pressure and who's got a vacuum leak.
