“Astounded” best describes my reaction when I learned of the “retirement” of Carol Edison [Five Spot, June 16, City Weekly]. The Chase Home Museum, which houses the state’s amazing collection of folk art, is indeed one of the real gems of the Beehive State. Edison has been the heart of the collection, and her perseverance, dedication and wisdom have made it one of the nation’s best.
I have no idea who ultimately made the bird-brained decision to let her go. Whoever it was should be run out of town on a rail.
