behold the power of the net

Was it only yesterday we posted that El Paso was considering cutting funding for their museum and closing it 3 days a week? We just heard that due to the flood of response, not only will the city’s museum budget not be cut, it will be increased 15%. The fight isn’t over, says Jeff Litchfield: he writes that there are "misleading ‘polls’ like the one on the front page of the current El PasoTimes.com asking you to make false choices between the Museums or tax increases." The tax increase in question is actually 3 tenths of a penny, or $3 per year per $100,000 of property value — but the El Paso Times doesn’t specify the amount.
