The financial difficulty that the August Wilson Center for African American Culture is facing (“August Wilson Center laying off staff,” May 11 and TribLIVE.com) is another fine example of a nonprofit mindset: “Let's build this, build that, fund that; let's get grant money, taxpayer money, etc., everything but our money; more where that came from, don't worry about it.”

What was wrong with buying an old warehouse and creating the center there? Oh, wait — business people think like that, nonprofit people don't.
