In 17 years work in museums, I have yet to see a donor give money to fix the
roof, pay the secretary, or clean up the trash dumped on the doorstep.  They
want their donations to be visible, the more the better, and who can blame
them?  I believe what made the price paid for Sue so astronomical was the
bizarre-ness and notoriety of the court case, FBI raid, etc.  High
visibility, indeed.
