Samuel Gompers died here in 1924 after suffering a heart attack in Mexico City; he was sped over to American soil on a commissioned train. So his affair with SA was brief, but fatal. More tragic, perhaps, is this bizarre, bobble-headed, verging-on-creepy, can't-tell-if-they're-going-for "rough-hewn" surface-or-if-it-maybe-melted-a-little-or-something public art installation. Look at his head! LOOK AT IT! Also, the crowd seems a trifle zombie-ish.
