Einstein + Confucius = No Exhibition

A rather strange disagreement between to major museums is causing the Einstein exhibition to bypass Shanghai.

According to the Associated Press, the show’s organizers from the Historical Museum of Bern were unhappy with plans of Shanghai’s Science and Technology Museum. The would-be hosts had apparently wanted to merge the Einstein show with a separate exhibit of comparable size about the great Chinese philosopher Confucius who lived more than 2000 years earlier.

Hum.. not sure what the issue is. To me, as long as one doesn't try to justify its existence or validity based on the other, I can't see any possible problem with having both simultaneously.
