    Plan to float giant banana over Texas fizzles

    SAN ANTONIO -- A plan to float a giant helium-filled banana blimp over Texas has gone bust -- due to a lack of money.

    Montreal-based artiest Cesar Saez says the banana plan is suspended.

    He says the whole attempt was to develop the idea of artworks in space.

    The plan to float a huge, inflated banana over Texas was announced in late 2006. It called for a launch near Hermosillo, Mexico, this fall.

    The San Antonio Express-News reports the artwork, drifting eastward at about a 20-mile altitude, would have been visible over Texas until it eventually disintegrated.

    Saez has said he wanted "to bring some humor to the Texas sky."

    appealing to you?

    We're talking about a banana as long as football field. Estimated cost: one million dollars.

    Some wag commented it was appropriate for Texas as it is already a semi banana republic.

    Sounds like the kind of nonsense that loon Christo does. Gift wrapping islands and displaying giant umbrellas.

    Had a display of giant umbrellas by Christo here in California some years ago. It was taken down after the wind blew a 500 pound umbrella into a woman and killed her.

    Hard to believe anything less than a hurricane could do that.

    Well, time to split.
