    Background: Today and tomorrow are the last chances anyone will even have to see this sight. The Running Fence. A 24-mile long shimmering white curtain over the hills of northern California. It'll be taken down Wednesday.

    So here they came, over the weekend, cars congesting back-country farm roads.

    Police trying to keep them moving through the tiny toy of Valley Ford.

    But local entrepreneurs urging them to stop.

    In front of the Valley Ford post office where someone is selling Running Fence T-??? ....six and ten dollars.

    Where local artists try to sell pictures of the Fence which purports to be a piece of/art itself.

    Where crews who have worked on the Fence hand out free samples of it....
    The purpose of giving free samples is to discourage people from taking their own.

    The Running Fence has inspired intellectual vandalism.

    Graffiti painted on it referring to Dadaism.. the/school of irrational art.that someone thin this is related to.

    The guy running the helicopter rides, out of the cornfield, charges 17.50 a head. And is swamped.

    The Running Fence, art or not, is a spectacle. And t??? are thousands of people who have not wanted to miss ???
