Smithsonian Chief Steps Down

Lawrence Small stepped down from his post atop the Smithsonian Institution today, amid furor over his extravaganceas the Senate had voted this past week to freeze the $17M increase in spending budgeted from Congress. Things were looking pretty rough for Small, and it’s good that he decided to find someone else to pay over $2,500 to have his chandelier cleaned.

I suppose that amount might feel more appropriate if that was a euphemism for something.
