Blue Star

Repurposed Cow

Thinking of Kasem, whose Lebanese immigrant parents became Detroit grocers, it occurred to me only in America could a 20-foot-high fiberglass cow sculpture be repurposed for fun and profit.

“Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars,” Casey Kasem signed off on “American Top 40,” a musical countdown show he hosted on radio stations for 40 years.

Kasem’s death June 15 made me wonder if anyone still heeds that advice. Coincidentally, that was the same day a giant cow sculpture started its weeklong stay in the Spectators restaurant parking lot.
