Museum mistake

I was appalled to read in the Post-Gazette that the Carnegie Museum of Natural History was “buying out” its senior curators (“Carnegie History Museum Offers Buyouts to Curators,” Nov. 28).

Why would the museum want to shed the experienced people with national and international reputations who have built the collections and interpret them to the public? If there are financial problems, why not cut the administrative and development staff, who are evidentially not capturing the needed funding?

Surely there is a better way to solve problems than sending out of Pittsburgh the talented curators who have made the museum the content-rich environment it is.
