I really wish they'd just close this and move on to something else. I won't bring my family there while this exhibit is on display.

So, it's all about you? Sheesh, this world don't revolve around you or your family. If the crowds are large and DP is making money in this economy, shouldn't you be happy that they will be able to bring more great exhibits in the future?

Why somebody got to be racist against mummies. Won't take their faily to see them. They ain't gonna mug you or nothing. Mummies gotta make a living too.
