I wonder how much of the 50 mil will actually go to the arts; the bulk of it, little doubt, going to the casinos. It's funny, I recall all these artists, such as Paul Auster, going on about how much arts and culture had suffered under Bush and their optimism at 'change'. I guess it's not going to improve any time soon.
Poor form on not extending it to strip joints- table dancers could probably do with the cash more than any of us (certainly more so than your average golfer).
