Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] House subcommittee voted yesterday to sharply


 
Well, to be really old fashioned one could think about the amazing things  
the Federal Theatre Project did for puppet theater in the US.  The  government 
support for puppet theater across the United States employed hundreds  (if not 
thousands) of puppeteers, including some of our greatest.  This  government 
support for theater (of all kinds) had a lasting and positive effect  on 
American puppet theater.

think I  have to agree with Mr Dunfee.  I have been a full time professional  
puppeteer for over 30 years and made a damn good living.  I never  thought 
someone should give me money to build my shows since I was the one  profiting 
from 
them.  I built a lot of large marionette shows costing  me from 20 thousand 
to 
fourty thousand each, and have paid for them  myself.  Maybe I'm just old 
fashioned.  There's my two cents  worth.  F  Cowan
