    You've got to be shitting me. :eek:

    I {heart} journalism, and I {double-heart} museums ... but no way in hell am I paying $20 to go to the fucking Newseum.

    But hey, maybe they'll give me a discount to sit at the copy editor "kiosk" and explain what it's like to be a desker. That's worth the price of admission all by itself! :D

    Given the distaste most unintelligent red-blooded Americans have for the media and our role in fucking everything up, there's no fucking way that will succeed.

    And you'll probably hear, "So what do you cover?" about 320 times a day. Right before all those disappointed children walk away and call you a loser under their breaths.
  4. And they fucking wonder why newspapers are going extinct: Let's build a museum that costs $20 a ticket in a city full of free fucking museums.

    They shoulda built the damn thing in Tahoe.

    They should also make all the exhibits available for free online before the museum opens. That would drive up revenues.

    I paid $16 for the Spy Museum in D.C. That money was not well-spent.

    Interesting. My wife went to the spy museum when she accompanied her class on a trip to DC last year and loved it.

    I'm not real big on that stuff. My friend, the history teach, would probably still be there if we didn't pull him away.

    So some of the exhibits will be computers that crash on deadline with cursing editors in the background?
