Culturebot Speaks Up

Greg - I haven't been on your site in months, maybe a year - last time was when I was trying to track you down for an article for the Grand Rapids Legal News... But anyway, I was for no good reason unaware of the controversy over cutting arts funding. Where does it stand now? The real comment I have is that it flies in the face of all the "new economy" analysis (coming in large part out of some state agencies and MSU's Land Policy Institute and other economics-driven analyses) that says attracting the creative class (which no one ever really questions is a goal) is much facilitated by high commitment to "arts and culture." On a national scale that doesn't bring any policy to mind (that is, we don't seem to be competing against Europe for retaining all those young creatives), but from a Michigan point of view, it's counterintuitive. Thoughts?
