Surprise! Obama’s 2013 Budget Doesn’t Axe the Arts; Gator Pool Frothing in Anticipation

The president’s 2013 “re-election budget” has got my vote: Allen Keckonen of the San Antonio Art Festivals Examiner has waded through the numbers and concludes that last fall’s cuts for the NEA and NEH have been largely offset by 5.5% budget increases this time around! Of course, it’s just a proposal, if it dances across the gator pool of deficit hawks, it must still dodge the firing squad of competing special interests, and wriggle through a crack in the fortress of partisan obstructionism, but who’s worrying?
