Thanks for that explanation Al, it helps to understand where you’re coming from, and you bring up an excellent point.
Personally when I see “Museum” in this context, I don’t think of this as a museum not taking care of the artifacts, I look at this from the standpoint of the founder not taking the necessary steps when setting the Museum up to ensure its preservation after his death (or when the founder runs out of money).
Basically I think we each have our life experiences colouring our views in this matter. At least the effort I was involved with was able to dispose of its assets to other non-profits.
