More arts money should be school bound - Zach Porter

I've heard the argument lately from liberals that the Bush administration is the beginning of the end for the Cultural Arts. The claim is that the Bush constituency is a group of people devoid of cultural which I've stated before is impossible, and artistic sensibility which is largely an elitist construction to deny individuals' participation in the artistic process.
