Every day this week, we're checking in with Michael Farquhar, author of "Bad Days in History: A Gleefully Grim Chronicle of Misfortune, Mayhem, and Misery for Every Day of the Year" to find out one bad thing that happened on this day in history.

Today, Here & Now's Robin Young speaks to Farquhar about a battle over artistic freedom between Nelson Rockefeller and Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, as well as the collapse of New Hampshire's Old Man of the Mountain on May 3, 2003.
