The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are facing serious management and morale problems, according to recent news reports. The institutions -- which include the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park and the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park -- have been without a director since John Buchanan died over a year ago. Several longtime staff members have been fired. Some critics have blamed Board President Diane B. Wilsey for the museums' troubles and have accused her of nepotism and other misuses of power.

Host: Michael Krasny
