So what do you think of this then? The American Recovery and Reinvestment act which was passed in the Senate is to include a $50 million endowment to assist the arts and cultural workfore. This sounds all well and good but i hope you will forgive me for being a little sceptical considering Obama’s vague and underdeveloped Arts Platform document. I know there are bigger fish to fry in Washington at the moment and I don’t mean to go pissing on that huge bonfire especially when his posistive rhetoric is a breath of fresh air.  We all know I’m only bringing this up, not just because the eyes of the world are on Obama and therefore one is obliged to pass comment but because it much easier to go on about whats happening across the water than look at the mess we have right here at home…!

Over and out
