Prerogative of Harlots is a blog about museums and museum collections, with an occasional seasoning of paleontology and a lot of really ill-informed musings about other stuff.

After 20 years in the same profession and nearly 18 years of marriage, my wife and I were actually in a meeting together today. Which she chaired. And, despite it being rather surreal, it all went very well. I'm just in a mild state of shock.
Rudyard Kipling said that power without responsibility is the prerogative of harlots. Some cynics say that it is also the prerogative of the tenured museum curator. Am I am one of those cynics? Read the blog and decide for yourself.
