Subject: Re: Correction NEA and PBS

The budget for the NEA and NEH are 145 million these days. The cost of security 
only yesterday in DC was 100 million and the events 200 mil. And the Corporation 
for Public Broadcasting, also to be defunded, is the largest contributor to PBS and 
will certainly doom PBS when withdrawn. 
This has absolutely nothing to do with reducing government spending. Ordering 
one less F-35 fighter jet would finance all these agencies for several years. This is 
simply "Anti-Intellectualism in America Life" (also the title of a 1964 Pulitzer Prize-
winning book by Richard Hofstadter, basic to understanding America's cultural 
heritage and the ever-present resistance to the democratization of education.)
