[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.
