The Sloan Museum of Oddities
Is it just me or is the Alfred P. Sloan Museum one of the most fantastically weird treasure troves of historical bric-a-brac in the country? I'd forgotten how great this place really is until I visited it this summer after a 33 year hiatus. They were testing the sound system during my visit, so I took it all in with "Smile Like You Mean It" by The Killers inexplicably blaring away in the background, which somehow seemed appropriate. Maybe that could be Flint's unofficial theme song.
