My mom was an athropologist at the Smithsonian when I was little. True to 70s style, when there was a day off of school that didn't correspond to a government holiday she'd just take me to work and cut me loose in the Natural History Museum. I couldn't have been more than 6 to 8. For reference her co-workers gave me candy cigarettes as treats.

I once wrote the Smithsonian about opening other museums around the country, so that some catastrophe (a nuke, for example) wouldn't wipe out entire collections.*

They replied that they "needed" a collection to be in one location to make it easier to do research. What a crock of shiat. If someone wants to examine all 2,000 specimens of a particular species of parrot, budget for travel in your research funding.

Quit making people go to DC to see a fractionof their collections.

*Collections lost in the World Trade Center attack.
