Hey, I don't care what athletes are paid so long as they're not paid with
public money. If high-paid athletes bug me then I don't have to go to the
ball park. When the NEA confiscates my money and gives it to an artist who
I have no interest in, I don't have a choice. Incidently, I'm against any
state funding of sports arenas, too.

If artists can't survive without public support, then good riddance. I'll
wait for artists who don't need a nanny.

cheers
