Anchorman: The Exhibit

It's kind of a big deal that the Newseum would dedicate an entire exhibition to the exploits of anchorman Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 Evening News team. A pop-culture play tied to the opening of "Anchorman 2" on Dec. 20? Definitely. But just like milk, missing out on this collection of costumes, props and footage from the Will Ferrell-Adam McKay film would be a bad choice.
