“In the earliest hours of a cold winter morning, a slumbering behemoth awoke. From its tranquil resting place on Kellogg’s field, the gigantic form began to stir. The mammoth moved slowly, with street lights casting its massive shadow across wide expanses, toward one of community’s main transportation arteries. It was not alone. While the gaint slept, a curious crowd gathered. When it began to move, the waiting assembly responded. As TV cameras rolled, all attention became riveted on the sight. Uncertain, people hurried from its path. Workmen who had been busying themselves adjusting utility wires stopped to watch the lumbering hulk pass. A woman screamed as the thing weaved, barely missing the street light suspended from it’s metal pole. Within four hours it was over. The colossus had reached its destination and, anti-climatically, fell to rest once more.”
