Anyone have $150M I can borrow?

Why should David Geffen have all the Pollocks?

CEDAR FALLS - The Iowa Board of Regents has agreed to study a possible sale of a famous Jackson Pollock painting at the University of Iowa to help pay for flood recovery on campus....

June's record flooding swamped 20 buildings and caused an estimated $232 million in damage. The university's Museum of Art was among the flooded buildings. Most of the collection was removed without damage, including Pollack's 8-by-20-foot ''Mural.''
What? Saving taxpayers $100M or so? In the Socialist Republic of Iowa City? As I type, students are organizing against it...
