From The Department of Irony...

Sen. Tom Coburn(R-Okla.), who led the charge "to ensure that taxpayer money is not lost on wasteful and non-stimulative projects," such as funding museums, theaters and arts centers has kept money from his own daughter's pocket, the up-and-coming soprano Sarah Coburn.

(Aria Serious has heard incredible things about her Lakme. That's her to the left with Aria Serious friend Larry "Go Steelers!" Brownlee.)

You can read about all of it here. Meanwhile, I'm going to go waste money on completely non-stimulating things like Don Quixote.

Man... That is an unfortunate amendment to the bill indeed. I fail to see what is so 'unstimulating' about funding the arts and museums. :oP They employ people after all... and there are loads of nearby businesses that cater to theater and museum goers!

But then I'm preaching to the choir. :o( Sorry, folks!
