But even our mightiest institutions can take on water and list. Our institutions can also be easily scuttled from within, perhaps under the mistaken impression that they ride too high in the water, or simply that the ocean would be better off with a new addition to the sea floor.

- James Panero, "Unmaking the Met" - an essay in The Critical Temper, edited by Roger Kimball
