Nicholson Baker article

A comment in response to Peter Graham and others. I find it
interesting to see the phrase "sentimental reasons" used on a
discussion list devoted to conservation. What exactly does this
mean? I am disturbed by the idea of refusing to fund treatment or
preservation of objects or material because those seeking to do so
are motivated by  "sentimental reasons"  Who defines when the reason
is "sentimental"?
