Sell Detroit’s Art – It’s the Right Thing to Do
Bill Quick

Fate of Detroit’s Art Hangs in the Balance – NYTimes.com

Enter bankruptcy, the fate of the city’s art collection — one of the finest in the country — now moves front and center in the legal battle over the city’s future.

It’s an asset. Creditors get first claim on assets in a bankruptcy.

If the City of Detroit had wanted to keep its “treasures,” it shouldn’t have borrowed and spent itself into bankruptcy.

Sell’em. Sell’em all, and send them to cities that will actually value them enough to protect them from this sort of fire sale.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
