I'm going to help cover Marion County stuff...how about you? Maybe we should send each of our legislators a roll of plastic to remind them that the Archives is rotting away right now. We are already Number 51 in the country--how can we sink any lower? (Pardon the pun)
Is there a line item in the current budget for a new Archives? I would guess not. Maybe we should put a row of slot machines in the Archives lobby! I know--let's sell the Archives to Ancestry.com! It worked for the Turnpike. They can digitize everything, charge users for access, and send us a nice cut every year.
Yeah, that oughta work...we can call it The Indiana Sinkhole! Or Supreme Court-wise, the Hoosier Drapery Defense.
