Will the museum get rid of the Krafft?

"What sort of man was Duke Lotto Agamemnides? We may say he was a brave man, yet a man who knew the value of caution. We may say he was possessed of a highly refined sense of honor — yet, like all leaders, he was no less capable of acts duplicitous and sleazy. We may say this, we may say that — indeed, we may say anything we want. We may say, for example, that he was not a man at all, but rather a highly evolved bicycle. See? We may say just about anything."
