“There will be no discussion – none at all – of US cultural policy.”

“…if I were moderating tonight’s TV debate, I’d start with one question and a follow-up, and I’d wait for the flop-sweat: Senator, name one great civilization in world history whose government was not a major arts patron.

Now, what can we learn from this?”
