Suggestion Box: Oscar, stop cutting off your nose

We’re as fascinated by our mayor as the rest of the free world, but we really feel the need to call him on his latest comment on the arts, specifically that he doesn’t see an art museum as necessary for Downtown. Really, Oscar? You, the biggest proponent of revitalizing the heart of Sin City, would rather drive arts patrons (and their money) to the Strip to get their culture fix? And for what? So you can get more support for your mob museum? We suggest you stop cutting off your nose to spite your city.
