Closure isn't about money

Editor: I have waited to write this letter hoping that reason and common sense would prevail at the University of Wyoming and our state government, but I can see that those two commodities are in very short supply in both places. We live in a state in which, without the unique geological formations that are here, we would not have the jobs, wealth and abundance that we enjoy. Now we have no geological museum at UW to use for investigating these wonders.

Wyoming is one of only two states that recognize both a state dinosaur and a state fossil; the state dinosaur was selected by the school children of this state in 1994. Can these now grown children visit their only four-year university and view these objects that the state should be so proud of? No!
