Smithsonian Caviar Lifestyle?

The Post has an article today on the expenses that are being covered by the government for Smithsonian Secretary Lawrence Small, including $48,000 that he spent on two chairs, a conference table, and some upholstery. While I generally may cut the Smithsonian some slack for being a fine outfit that does lots of good for the DC area, $31k on Berkeley Stripe upholstery is a getting a bit insane. Not to mention that was just part of $160k that he spent on redecoration of his offices. It just strikes me as odd how executive compensation works in this case.
