So people are just now noticing that Romney wants to cut PBS’s funding and calls out Big Bird specifically. The puppetry community has been aware of this for quite awhile before last night’s debate. This is from months ago.
I don’t even know where to start with the stupid embodied here. So I’m going to give you a song instead.
No, I’m wrong. I’m going to rant for a little. Do you know what draws people to a city like Chicago, San Francisco, New York, or heck, Chattanooga? Jobs, yes. But that’s not what people talk about. That’s not what brings in people from somewhere else. It’s the arts and it’s education. How many times have you seen someone pick a neighborhood because it has a good school system, even though it is farther from where they work?
The arts are what make a community vital and worth living in. Education is the future of our country.
When Romney, or anyone else, talks programs that are vital what are they talking about? Weapons? More oil? Because, for the life of me, I can’t think of anything more vital than educating children. I mean… really? We’re going to subsidize corn but not educational televsion.
