So cough it up, Austin – 10/23/06 – Rainey Knudson
Austin art institutions are collaborating on a nudge-nudge-wink-wink for the recently monied of the city, bringing in Raymond Nasher and Linda Pace to join local collectors Jeanne and Michael Klein, big guns all, for a public discussion on collecting and philanthropy, Sunday, Nov. 12, 2-3:30 pm at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Says organizer Ed Vaughan “Austin is relatively new to the support of major cultural institutions.” Putting it mildly.

I know. We’re going backwards in time. Sherman… Set the Way-Back Machine to the year 2006… I had to laugh when someone sent this reminder to me. It’s not really funny… So why, then, am I laughing? Idiocracy is indefatigable in Austin? “The more things change (especially in a technological sense) – the more they stay the same…” Honestly, I don’t know… Maybe.
