WEDGWOOD MUSEUM FIASCO SETTLED UNFAVORABLY
Well, in their full stupidity, the powers that be in England have decided that the Wedgwood Museum holdings will be sold to the highest bidder. The repercussions of this mess are going to be felt far and wide. People are going to lose jobs, money spent in the past is now a total waste. The family and the public will likely lose access to one of the most valuable records of a nation, industry and society in the civilized world. All because of a poorly written law that no one bothered to think through. That is a major flaw with our modern society, no one can think. Now we will see the consequences...what a loss to the world of history of the industrialized world. The phrase that someone is rolling over in his or her grave pales by comparison to what Josiah and his contemporaries are doing right now.
