So I heard today that by a vote of 6-2, this city's "Arts Commission" has decided to allow a 2,000-pound, artistically undistinguished, schlocky prop of I don't know what to stand at the foot of one of America's premier art museums. (See "Rocky Wins Split Decision to Stand Near Art Museum," by Michael Vitez of the Philadelphia Inquirer.)
Please come visit Philadelphia. We want your tourist dollars. Apparently we care about little else, let alone anything greater.
