It's always nice when people respond to things I post. As the regular reader will know, over the past couple of years I've written some quite critical things about Thomas H. Benton and his views on natural history museums. After my most recent post on this subject, where I acknowledged that he might have a point where some museums are concerned, he was kind enough to get in touch - you can read his response at the bottom of the post. Anyway, the upshot of all this is that we're going to meet in a month or so to walk around the galleries at ANSP and have a convesation about the challenges of exhibiting natural history, which I hope will be posted here shortly thereafter. I'm looking forward to it.
