May 2011: The Tumbleweed has returned! April 2011: Unofficial tumbleweed advocate Phil Pasquini, who has kept an eye on this museum exhibit accessory for 30+ years, writes: "Not to worry. They have two and sometimes remove one for cleaning… Besides, when it's removed at Xmas, they get nothing but complaints about it and have to post a sign in the museum telling when it will be replaced."
