The WH can borrow art from the various USG owned art museums in DC. If you are an Assistant to the President (top ranked staff) you have this privilege for your office. You can't take just anything, e.g., the National Gallery's one Leonardo is off limits, but lesser works can be claimed for a time.

Sounds like a pretty cool thing to do - shop for office art at the museum...

It is a little be incendiary, GDL, to suggest that things that are French retreat naturally.

I'm surprised at you.

A short walk through Pompidou's permanent collection would be enough to satisfy me.

Although, even here, I wouldn't mind borring a Pollock or Close from MoMA

We do, but when we have shit stolen, we don't normally return it.

I feel that Etch A Sketch really brings out these details.

I wonder how much it would cost to commission that guy to do the Esky plates...

I can't see myself ever buying really expensive underwear, but who knows.

I generally prefer my regular ties over my 7 folds.

I prefer non-show quality cats and dogs.

Strange -- I find my old Docs treacherous on snow/ice

Only in Lent, to go with my hair shirt.

Point taken -- I will stick to cotton for underwear.
