    What's the rush on reporting this story, Register-Star? The event only happened FOUR days ago. Shameful. But then, we've grown to expect a complete lack of journalistic standards from a "newspaper" that is turning itself into a store-giveaway-brochure printer and thumbs its nose at subscribers and readers. Frankly, it's a puzzlement why the organization bothers with reporter staff at all.

    What kind of reporting is this?

    The article never mentions the fact that the figure was sold at Stair Galleries, which is a terrific business that a) employees lots of qualified people, b) brings lots of business to Hudson since auction goers patronize the city's restaurants and Warren Street shops during sales and c) through its transactions adds to the sales tax collected by the state (though perhaps not in the case of the figure as it may have been sold to a Russian oligarch and exported making it presumably exempt from sales tax).

    The auction occurred at Stair Galleries on Warren Street in case that was not clear.
