"Lending for compensation is not unheard of"

What repulsive Stalinist said that?

The AAM's Dewey Blanton, who tells the Brandeis Hoot that "museums usually lend their pieces for only the charge of shipping and insurance of the pieces, but that in tough economic times lending for compensation 'can be a win-win situation for the lender, who gets money, and the borrower, who gets access to new art'" (my emphasis).

Oh the shame!

The Hoot also reports that a Dec. 12 trial date has been set in the Rose lawsuit.
