The arts survive because they are a human necessity. Disappear all the arts
programs and people will still make.
Maybe we have to pay attention a little more, as to why we make as opposed
to how we make.

Yeah, and I'm finding a lot of those people to be guidance counselors. You
can't make a living in art.....

Much better to spend billions of dollars on a country that we will bomb to

education for the bombees. (OOH, and that's after we've done such a grand
job in Afghanistan)
I'm having a real hard time doing my taxes this year.
