I put your name in the subject line so that you might be sure to read it and offer your thoughts. I'm baffled that you see this as a personal attack. Nonetheless, I'd still like your answer:
What do you propose we do to fund the arts sans NEA? Ten years ago, Indiegogo was how you easily asked your friends for ten or fifteen bucks to help you put on a basement show - now it's become a de facto sourcing model for projects of all size, as other revenue streams dry up. How much worse will it get, if we kill the NEA?
Is this what we want the future of out art to be? I am asking you, specifically you, Teacher64, because you are a vocal supporter of these cuts. What do you want instead? I've never known it to be attacking someone by asking them to explain their convictions, and I don't see why that had to change now.
