Alan & Maryann:
Thank you for the replies! Alan: I read the website (re the latest in the dispute over the return of the Parthenon Marble) with interest. Thank you for that.
The last time I was in the British Museum I was interviewed by a museum employee about my reaction to the place and suggestions (just the standard interview, picked out of the crowd), and when I mentioned the "Elgin Marbles" I was told, politely of course, that the term is no longer used by the Museum. The website article made the same point.
But Rick and/or his editors apparently aren't aware of this, his 2009 London and England books are still rife with the non-PC term "Elgin Marbles."
I even tried sending Rick's editor a note on that but that portion of the site is malfunctioning.
