Ants, and why not?

I don’t normally cover ants. But I am curious about the general tone and content level of exhibitions at the Smithsonian, including the National Museum of Natural History, one its most popular franchises. Readers responding to today’s story tended to favor hitting harder on the issue of the exhibition’s rather low educational level. That’s encouraging. Not everyone is convinced that the fate of museums is to morph into entertainment venues.
