Oh boyyyyyy--here we go! Methinks even the "N" word (NEA) is going to pop up in this discussion! Or maybe even the "R" (Right)word!!!!!!!!!!

Well, it would be interesting to try to have a discussion on Arts funding in America without mentioning the name of the federal government's arts funding agency. . . .<P>My hope is that we can limit the discussion to things that we actually <I>know</I>. . .not things we've "heard" or things we assume to be true, but things we actually know. That's my hope.<P>------------------<BR>Jeffrey E.

Why don't we wait to see what the administration proposes and how Congress disposes - and then we will know, and not be dealing with assumptions.<P>In the meantime we can lobby (write, telephone) our representatives and convey our thoughts to them.

Well, Basheva, we can certainly discuss what we'd <I>like</I> to see done.

Of course - discussion without assumption or castigation or stereotyping is always to be enjoyed.....

Well, we have something in the spot light now that might "push the envelope".<P>I'm sure it won't be long before we know how EVERYBODY feels, including the Bush Administration.<P>I'm sure that some of them will speak out individually.<BR> <A HREF="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/nation/latestap/A12009-2001Feb15.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/nation/latestap/A12009-2001Feb15.html</A>

<B>Arts Endowment Chief to Resign - White House Expresses Surprise At Bill Ivey's Decision</B> <P>By Jacqueline Trescott for the Washington Post <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Bill Ivey, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, unexpectedly announced yesterday that he would step down in September. <P>Appointed by President Clinton in 1998, Ivey came to the NEA when the agency was rebuilding its credibility with Capitol Hill after years of battles over controversial grants. In the mid-1990s, the Republican-led Congress almost demolished the agency,reducing its appropriation by 50 percent. That action forced the NEA to cut programs and staff. Last year, Ivey and NEA supporters won a $7 million increase, the first since 1992.<P>Ivey would not comment directly on his decision yesterday but released a statement saying his timing was good for the new administration and the agency.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A61282-2001Apr24.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A>
