Plenty of folks in these parts despise and/or are terrified by "Mustang," the demonic sculpture at Denver International Airport that managed to kill its creator, Luis Jiménez . Rachel Hultin's Facebook page, entitled "DIA's Heinous Blue Mustang Has Got to Go," neatly encapsulates negative views about the piece, which has been valued at $2 million -- proof that money is the root of all evil. But not everyone wants to send this horse to the glue factory. In the July issue of Cowboys & Indians, a popular magazine devoted to the old and new West, writer Wolf Schneider declares the steed to be as "big as the Denver sky." As for her opinion of the piece, she writes: "I love it. I believe Blue Mustang's intensity shows fright provoked by a changing Western landscape, and the sculpture reminds me I'm in the West."
