There’s an article in today’s NY Times regarding the state of the buildings where the Smithsonian is housed. It sounds like they are barely just hanging on in some situations. I thought about going to their site and donating money to the museum, but I really can’t afford it right now. And when am I ever going to go to DC to check it all out (okay, that’s a selfish reason)? It is still disturbing to hear about the damage that has been done because of the old buildings and lack of funds for adequate repair.
