CPO can only hope that the latest dust-up between the AIA's St. Louis Chapter and the national organization will lead to a reassessment of the AIA's jihad against the sales of antiquities.

More likely, however, the ideologues that run the organization will punish the AIA's St. Louis Chapter for its "crime" of selling well-provenanced artifacts, apparently to help fund a community archaeology project. 

In doing so, however, the AIA will only alienate itself further from collectors and dealers, who, after all, share the AIA's passion for the past.
