Opening Arguments

Make way!

Hey, if you're going to get people to come to your museum to appreciate natural history, they have to be able to park, right?

The Witte Museum is raising eyebrows from those who say the natural history museum is plotting to destroy natural history.

Trees that have been on the grounds adjacent to the museum since the turn of the century could now be replaced by a parking garage.

Sort of like the tearing-down-businesses-in-order-to-create-space-for-businesses school of economic developmet.
