If the August Wilson Center for African American Culture were truly an important cultural asset, as claimed by Allegheny County Councilman Bill Robinson, D-Hill District, people would be going there voluntarily and paying admission fees.

This applies to all of our “cultural assets.” If people really value something, they will voluntarily buy admission to it, whether it is the Pittsburgh Symphony or the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Politicians have no moral authority to take money from the public to support the institutions that they, the politicians, value. It's a prescription for corruption.
