Night at the (Axed) Museum

The LVRJ ran a sappy story on Tuesday in which many of the artsy-fartsy folks bemoaned the fact that four Nevada museums might be shuttered because of the economic crisis the state faces during the ongoing recession.

David Markoff, a member of the state Board of Museums and History, maintains that “Museums not only serve educational and research functions, but generate millions of dollars in tourism.”

First, before closing any more museums, we should first disband the state Board of Museums and History.

Secondly, sorry, Charlie. Museums are nice, but they aren’t “essential.”

Thirdly, if they’re really all that popular and are generating millions of dollars in tourism, then they should be self-sustaining and not need taxpayer subsidies. Sell ‘em off to private entities.

Problem solved. Next?
