I doubt that I would ever leave this country again therefore, I doubt I would visit the museum. I believe that there should be outlets for all the world's arts and that they should be in enough places that all persons can enjoy them. My problem here is that the Arab world is unstable. The Fringe Groups have no problem "torching" public places of any kind. I doubt the Guggenheim would be left untouched. I would hate to see the loss of art and architecture. Although selfish, I would like to see the worlds art in more secure countries. Regards, Bill.

It is nice to read about something that celebrates the creativity and imagination of the human mind and with no cultural divisions.    We live in such a precarious and ill fated world it seems more and more.     I have not been on the computer much and am going to physical therapy for severe pain in my hip being contributed to a lumbar spinal condition.     I am trying to get around to the journals a little at a time and then just laying on my board and cushion reading to relieve the pain.    mark
