Subby has either never been to an airport or never bothered to look around while at one.

Also, he probably never been in the corporate office of a large corporation. They have millions of dollars of artwork hanging in those places. That painting hanging on the wall in your department's lobby maybe be mundane to you, but it probably is worth a few thousand if not 10's of thousands of dollars

Tax law makes *anything* they buy a business expense and the "Fine Art Community" makes artwork a profitable investment.

Neither of those things should be true. Just more benefits governments and society grant the rich.
