• Observation on the upcoming hearing, and what Grassass, Iowa, said about how he'll run it:

      The committee (i.e., the GOP majority controlling the committee) gets to decide what witnesses are called, how many witnesses are called, what order they are called in, and who gets to question...

    • I went to private school in the south, very few blacks, perhaps at first on purpose, later probably the cost if to guess (very early on was a non-evangelical school, quickly became secular). Wasn't strict and pedantic, but we didn't come out sounding like dumb half-literate southerners either....

    • for the boomer period, the higher standards were for behavior, very strict, those that caused too much trouble or needed special attention were kicked out to the public schools. I'm talking grade 1-8, no kindergarten available, you went to public if you wanted that. Classes of 50, one twenty-...

    • At least the Southern Hip-Hop Museum in Atlanta will have a Black curator. Rapper T.I. will curate the museum.

    • Most of my comment addressed the article which I completely disagree with and which annoyed me since I really value language skills and a rich vocabulary. Before I got  a chance to post it you posted your comment and I attached mine since I thought it interesting that your parochial school was...

    • all I can suggest is a couple things selected from Rick Wilson's tweets above: the first, Because Trump way upthread and then later, The secret of the uncertainty over RR is tension between President Hannity and President Giuliani.

    • So, on some level, the whole split DOJ thing gives Trump cover.
      He knows it will bring him down but plays it as just another plot against him.
      I don't understand what is happening.

    • From the NYT article

      Now, eager to attract a broader cross-section of visitors at a time when the country’s demographics are changing — and, in New York, facing an ultimatum linking city funding to inclusion plans — a growing number of museums are addressing diversity with...

    • Get a clue, most art museums are consistently broke! They need unpaid help. Furthermore they don't owe anybody anything if they don't get any tax money. When you are a curator or director, you must earn your keep by bringing in money, that is the work they mostly do these days, that's...

    • I agree with what you are saying. Was just recounting that my school didn't follow it. Which just goes to the point that as schools are funded by localities and real estate taxes, probably actual practice is going to differ whether we like or not, no matter what curriculum rules and laws say....

    • Interesting, in the public school I went to we were. I remember it being said to me, a white boy, it actually pissed me off. So it's a bit hard for me to get the white supremacist part of teaching "proper" English. The "may I can I" controversy is a bit pedantic, it's more about power than...

    • Things change. The push for paid internships will benefit everyone.

    • Two accusers and a third in the wings. That makes one wonder how many shoes there are and how many are still left to drop. There has got to be some limit to how much they will push him through.

    • I couldn't afford an unpaid internship either and I resented those who could. I get that. It is a class problem, not race. I waitressed while others got a foot into the door of the museum world. Still I almost got a job out after a masters as a curator of a small house museum in New Orleans. ...

    • Rosenstein told people he was worried about Trump “disparaging” him if he leaves. People close to Trump aren’t sure what he plans to say to potus at Thursday meeting, which Rosenstein sought https...

    • AA. You don’t get to say when it’s over. I don’t get to say when it’s over. When there are enough faces seen as museum curators, it will be over. The discussion about black NFL head coaches died down for the most part. Now the discussion has removed to minorities in the team offices in the NFL...

    • Wow, made me realize that @ Milwaukee parochial school in the 60's, white nabe, we weren't taught any of that "may I" stuff (maybe the coastal elites were taught that?. I suspect though, that they were probably just taught to talk like their parents like we were.)

      We all talked the "can...

    • It's not holding at all, it's changing very rapidly. Your own links above are examples, I could give you a hundred more. You have no idea of how you and those on twitter are complaining about something that is over, much ado about the past, not the present. The major museum world is not Trump...
