Re: Latest in Nate Murphy scandal



There is also an article in today's Great Falls Tribune titled:  
"Malta museum hopes dinosaur's tour will help pay for its final home"
http://www.greatfallstribune.com/article/20100124/NEWS01/1240303/1002/news01
 
The exhibit just closed at the Houston Museum of Natural Science is called  
a "great success", with many excuses as to why it only drew 32,500 visitors 
 during the year.  Fifteen dollars plus the museum admission of $10-15 
seems  pretty steep for an exhibit that many may have considered little better 
than  "The Thing" in Arizona.  
 
However:
http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/6331848.html
"2 Houston museums thrive despite recession"...says that the museum draws 4 
 million visitors, including 500,000 school children. If the exhibit drew 
32,500  visitors, less than 7% of the children saw it, and that should have 
been their  target audience.  If you consider 4 million total visitors, less 
than 1%  saw it.  I'm not sure what kind of thinking makes that a great  
success.
