Now I'm convinced
Yesterday I wrote about Dan Finley rescuing himself by taking on the Milwaukee Museum for a mere $185,000 per year while the employees, all of whom know more about the museum than Finley, have had salaries slashed and jobs eliminated. But now I'm convinced this is in the public interest. How do I reach that conclusion?
Michael Grebe, former head of Foley&Lardner, former campaign manager for Bob Kasten and now president and CEO of the ultra-right Bradley Foundation, thinks Finley's appointment could mean that the problems created by privatization "could turn out to be a real positive." (Foley represented the Friends of the Museum who fought to privatize the museum.)
I'm not making this up. Grebe, according to MJS, said "the museum's problems have more people thinking about economic development and cultural matters in a regional perspective."
I suppose the Enron scandal was also positive. After all, we now think about energy in the context of manipulation. Whoa Nelly!
