    here at H&OES. The other day, Chris dissed the arts:

    Yep – test scores don’t matter when the results don’t conform to an overly inflated sense of self worth. I guess the American economy is the engine of the world because of all those drama and art majors we are turning out. The service industries thank you though. Waiters have to come from somewhere.

    Little did he know how right he was.

    Representative Louise M. Slaughter, a New York Democrat who is co-chairwoman of the Congressional Arts Caucus, said she was delighted to learn of Mr. Bush’s proposal [to boost the National Endowment for the Arts’ budget].

    “There’s nothing in the world that helps economic development more than arts programs,” Ms. Slaughter said. “It was foolish for Congress to choke them and starve them. We should cherish the people who can tell us who we are, where we came from and where we hope to go.”

    On a tour of Barcelona last year the man at the head of the coach (Yes, I was on a coach… with other people!) said: “Of course all the art here was created when Barcelona was a very rich city, you only get great art when there is a lot of money around”

    Money breeds art not vice versa.

    PS. It is more fun commenting on your your blog than writing on my own!

    “We should cherish the people who can tell us who we are, where we came from and where we hope to go.”

    I know who I am. I know where I came from. I’d be happy to tell her where to go.

    What a pompous ass of a woman! Typical of most arts-crafts, head-in-the-clouds (or up-their-a***s) types.
