We didn't care when you told us we should "know our museum director", why would we care now?

Posted by Mr. Poe | June 2, 2008 12:39 PM

a long needed shake up maybe. And Mr. Poe I suggest you care about this, if you care about your city at all. a museum like SAM is vital to the cultural landscape of Seattle.

But seriously, folks.

Perhaps Mimi can ask her son in law why the Web site shows all the apostrophes as question marks? Ah, yes, Word's typographic (curly) quotes, when pasted into HTML, produce nonsense without proper conversion or Web site configuration. ha.

Can she take the sculpture park with her?

@6: it's got nothing to do with Word. It's encoded in Western (ISO-8859-1) and you're looking at it in Unicode. View | Character Encoding in Firefox.

oh, shut your piehole, will. i like the sculpture park. and i like mimi, too. i can personally vouch that she is most gracious to the SAM volunteers, of which i am one. we've had some good conversations about museums, grandchildren, and art.

Can she take Will in Seattle with her?

the cultural landscape of seattle is somewhere between young white hipster and middle aged blue collared nativist.

I think the Sculpture Park is a part of an amazing legacy.

Let's compare with Will In Seattle's impact on Seattle.

Will loses.

Hahah Will everybody hates you and nobody cares what you have to say. You aren't heard and you aren't validated here.

maybe now we won't have exhibits that bore me to tears. that's right, Roman Art from the Louvre was BORING. just because it's old doesn't mean it wasn't BAD ART.

and if she was responsible for choosing Venturi or approving his scheme for that stair to nowhere, i won't miss her guidance.
