Want to know how it works?<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Politics Takes Precedence Over Merit In Arts Grants<P>Frank Rizzo, Hartford Courant<P>Should arts groups be grateful in whatever extra money they may receive from the state, regardless how it's given out?

A very honest statement by Frank Rizzo in the above article:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The bad part is that these newly enlightened politicians are also astute at finding the pork for their own district and when an all-you-can eat budget buffet is presented, problems can arise. Especially when there is no comprehensive evaluation of the projects, no sense of priorities, no consideration of smaller arts groups without access to political influence - and perhaps too much consideration for some well-connected groups with questionable projects.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
