Please post your notes, Pam. It sounds as though your speach was very inspiring.

        Subject: Oldest profession quote, thanks Maggie

        When I asked for quotes a few weeks ago, Maggie sent a super one that I used
        it today when I spoke at the Mayor's Breakfast for Education in the Arts at
        Flagstaff. It was a perfect opener and (believe it or not) I was able to
        tie it into the talk without a hitch. Even Tom Horne thought it was a great
        quote and actually referenced it in his talk!
        The quote? Contrary to popular belief, the oldest profession on earth is
        In my talk, I underscored the value of the visual arts and what the visual
        arts do for academic achievement. I tried to get across the point that the
        arts should not be used as a support system or handmaiden for the rest of
        the curriculum. The talk was to about 100 local, county, and state
        administrators. I was a bit surprised when one point midway in the talk
        received a rousing round of applause.
        If you'd care to read my notes, I can post them for your reference.
        For those of you in AZ, Tom Horne is on your side. I encourage you to look
        into the Opening Minds through Art grant opportunity. Although it does not
        specifically say "art", we are not left out. Horne itemized arts as being
        music, dance, theatre, AND visual arts.
