They Paved Paradise, Put Up a Parking Lot

I was so disappointed when Magic Carpet Golf was sold to a car dealership, which planned to raze the amazing folk art sculptures and make a parking lot. I reported in my blog (9/18/2009) that the Tiki Head, known throughout the Universe as Papa Moai, made a perilous journey to The Hut. I just read that almost all the other sculptures were also rescued.
