But isn't art a "basic human right?" One can be forgiven for drawing that conclusion, at least.
You mean, a fundamental human right, like Big Bird?
Something like that.
And "Democracy NOW!"
Hey if art is a fundamental human right, I'm pretty sure my vaulting is an art. And there's a beautiful Oldenburg yearling colt up in Canada and hes only 11K. Pretty sure we NEED that colt. :-)
Heh, and four or five more like him no doubt.
"Need" is much different in the eye of the holder than the eye of the want-er.
I found an article that found the salaries of the NPR folks we're so used to hearing (even me, who stopped listening to NPR ages ago).
Steve Inskeep: $355k base
Michelle Norris: $265k
Robert Siegel: $322 in 2010-2011.
Cry me a river over budget cuts, just don't get the shoes wet! I'll post that to FB when their "number" hits the news which will be no-doubt faithfully parroted by my liberal friends.
Seriously? Those are like POTUS level salaries. (Or mayors of small California towns.) What gives?
