If You're Wondering Which Americans Are Expendable...
via Wikipedia...look no further. Apparently, the people who shouldn't be saved in this economy are museum workers, arts centers, theatres, and anyone who works to save the culture from complete lobotomization. Because face it, as long as we've got Perez Hilton, Rock of Love, and He's Just Not That Into You, who needs Caravaggio, Mozart, or Shakespeare? Right?
Reprehensible. Chuck Shumer, especially, should run in fear, because he just lost one of his most supportive voting blocs...in one fell swoop.
UPDATE: If you want to do something about this, how about e-mailing your congressional leaders. And send it on to your friends and neighbors.
