Cruel Irony Dept.

Last week, my hometown of Phoenix, Arizona opened an amazingly cool-looking new joint: The Musical Instrument Museum, billed as "the world's first global musical instrument museum." As someone who feels obliged to visit the Met's instrument exhibit every time we go there, this is great news, and another reason to look forward to a visit home.

I did happen to notice one unfortunate slogan on MIM's website, though: Their "MIM Music Theater" is teased with the line, "The World's Music. No Passport Required."
