commented on Selling the Art of Detroit Is Batshit. Exactly.
Even if selling off some of the collection did work out for the city, it would destroy the reputation of the museum. No one is going to donate works of art or leave estates to the museum if there is that kind of precedent. The museum will never be able to guarantee that anything will stay in the museum's collection for the public to enjoy, because that's what they said last time.
No really, guys. This time we promise.

I was just having a bloody mary in my teeny tiny hometown of Brainerd, MN and told the bartender I didn't want any Russian vodka. She said "of course not, I refuse to serve it." This thing is reaching further than I expected. Thanks, Dan.
