Throwing Stones
From a facinating article in the New York Times about Philip Johnson's (in)famous Glasshouse now open to the public in New Canaan, CT. The article features a wide array of comments from luminaries and neighbors, including this one from the latter:

It was John Cage music and Merce Cunningham’s dancers — beautiful dancers. Cage’s music had something to do with doors slamming and whistles going off. Then great balloons — some big and black, some small and red and yellow. It was very strange. I thought to myself: “Here we are in 1967, standing next to a glass house listening to doors slam and whistles going off. This is out of this world.” It was so out of context for suburbia in the 60s.
