University Of Michigan Displays Flawed Artifacts
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a celebration of failure. Archaeologists at the University of Michigan have organized it. They made a display of flawed artifacts. They show off stone carvings that cracked and ceramic vessels that warped. The curator says we can learn a lot from the mistakes of past generations and she calls this exhibit least than perfect.
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Steve, I think that's less than perfect.
INSKEEP: Darn it, now I have to do it again.
GREENE: No, I'd just leave it.
