Many years (decades?) ago, a local TV station did a news piece about our city selling many of the artworks - statues, stained glass windows and such - that decorate our city hall, a 100+ year old Romanesque style building that is on the national historical register... in order to generate revenue.
This was done at a time long before many major cities faced their current financial crises, so the piece was jaw-dropping at first, then humorous when one realized that they couldn't possibly be serious... especially when the piece ended with plans to turn the building's courtyard into a public swimming pool.
With the current furor over state and municipal budget crises, if this story were to air today there would likely be protest marches!
