Give up the ghost

People in Marion expected 100,000 for their James Dean fesitival and got 6,000. Now the museum devoted to him is closing after only two years in its new location. "The fans" have spoken, and their message is pretty clear: Let him go; nobody cares anymore. The man had only three major movies in a career that spanned only a couple of years, and he's been dead for 50 years, but some people still seem to idolize him as a rebel whose life has some meaning in today's world. Pathetic.
