How to be ethical in the art world

In two easy steps.

Step one:  when the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts sells a $40 million Hopper in order to buy a bunch of contemporary art, say nothing.  Relax.  No reason to be so touchy.

Step two:  when the Delaware Art Museum announces plans to sell $30 million worth of art in order to keep from closing, get out the pitchforks.  Act as outraged as possible.  Rend garments.  And most of all:  PUNISH THEM.

A little thing called ethics, my friends.  Get with the program.
