[Wadabo_updates] US Secretary of the Arts?
Dear Arts Community at Large:
Quincy Jones has started a petition to ask President-Elect Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts. While many other countries have had Ministers of Art or Culture for centuries, The United States has never created such a position. Those in the arts need this and our country needs the arts now more than ever. Please take a moment to sign this important petition and then pass it on to your friends and colleagues.

Please, pass it on this would be great to have a voice that actually cares about the arts in a Government position.
