    Loudoun History is not a "market"; it's a heritage passed down through generations that carries with it a moral imperative to preserve, protect and disseminate that history for the next generation. As someone who spends most of my time trying to come up with ways to fund the arts, history and education, it doesn't surprise me the Museum doesn't meet the committee's criteria: you can't have outreach without funds to do so; you can't have great exhibits that draw crowds when you're scrambling to survive on 20% of what you had the year before; and you can't find donors for an entity that appears to be in the midst of a struggle to survive.

    There you go, Loudoun. Republican "values" in action.
