Frank Hamilton Senate Czars-committee on culture,scary! (66* d) RE: Senate Czars-committee on culture,scary! 23 Sep 99


Thanks, Jack for this information. It underscores the need for preserving, archiving, and promoting our natural cultural resources in the form of traditional American folk music. That's what the Lomax's through the Library of Congress Folkarts Division and the NEA subsidized Folklife Division have been successfully doing.

Now that our public schools no longer have the civilizing effect of music and art classes which have been cut back, the NEA is being challenged, and the agenda of a reactionary right-wing congress who seek to impose their "morals" on the American people, the Senate is creating that cultural crisis. The Special Committee on American Culture looks like a committee established by a branch of the late Soviet Union.

The solution? Vote those turkeys out of office.
