moca's higher power

Tyler Green continues to do the best blogging on the MOCA mess.

Just in case it needs be said again, the MOCA trustees are proving that they’re the worst art museum board in America. … The idiocy of this cannot be overstated: The MOCA board is apparently more willing to inflict upon itself an embarrassing public failure than it is to admit it needs help. Is there a 12-step program for non-profit mismanagement?

Question: if MOCA was to go through a 12 step program, who would be their higher power? Eli Broad? Michael Govan from LACMA? James Wood from the Getty?

Update: Looks like it wouldn't be Wood, since the Getty endowment is down 25 percent since June...
