The city does not belong in the museum business. That’s a “slippery slope” with possible other groups coming forward and asking for the same accommodations. As an example, would be hard to turn down a Vterans museum if requested, especially if this was precedent. Stick to the services that serve the Health Safety and Welfare of its citizens and let other groups step forward to handle this.

Absolutely! It is obvious that government has difficulty caring for the roads, drainage and other public services. Those wanting to project a specific agenda can organize and fund with the enthusiasm of the private population or forget it.

What? There is never-ending money to work on I-45. I call it the I-45 Eternal Construction Fund. Give Tarris Woods a couple days worth of that gravy train and he can have a fine museum.

Ron, Juneteenth STARTED in Galveston! I would support a City museum for anything cool that started here. As a father, son, and brother of veterans, I would say they get substantially more love than the African-Americans of this Island. Did one single restaurant offer free meals to black residents on Juneteenth? A bunch of places offered it for vets.

[thumbup] If Walter and I can agree on this, it must be a good thing.
