An amendment to the stimulus package has passed that has taken any hope of arts funding to a new low. At Parabasis, they're calling this the "How To Make Sure None Of The Stimulus Money Will Go To Enriching Or Bettering People's Lives Amendment" and I think that sums up my feelings on the matter.
Americans for the Arts is sponsoring a letter writing/email campaign to let both our Senators and the local media how we feel about this. It takes very little time, please make your voice heard!
I quote Darcy James Argue on his post on the issue, "Remember last week when people were all worried that America might indulge in too much arts funding...or that Obama might appoint an Arts Czar and that would be bad, somehow? Good times." Ain't that the truth!!
We're better than this...
