Off Topic I know but I thought you might like to consider these FACTS
Rather than go to war with Iraq the US (and this applies to other countries 
of the COW)
could of :
employed 5 MILLION more teachers (265,000 in Florida alone)
Built 2.5 MILLION new houses (21,000 in Kansas)
ENDED GLOBAL HUNGER for 12 years
Provided one year of full health care for 172 MILLION children (15 million 
in new york)
Funded 28 years of Global AIDS research and ended this disease.
Saved 250,000 Iraq lives (at least)
Still have 2,500 young Americans still alive today (not including those that 
are disabled or later die of injuries)
These are FACTS...check them out at

Pretty scary stuff, no?

To put it back on topic, how much arts funding could we create with the $290 
BILLION Dollars the US has spent in Iraq
Ya gotta wonder. . . .

Who is heading off to another Government funded production about 
Shakespeare.
