(F)Arts Dollars

It is appropriate that the announcement was as paltry as the content.

Relegated to a paragraph or two on page B2, the miscellany of local news, the "news" is that the BC Arts Council has awarded - wait for it, hold the apple sauce, er, applause - $7 Million to 270 artists and cultural organizations.

Oh, whoop-a-tee-ai-oh!

This is lunch money.

When I learn that we have invested $70 Million or $700 Million, I'll get off the couch and dance. Until then, keep the mediocrity coming.

I resigned from a local charitable organization, for many reasons including the outfit spending a $10thousand BC150 grant on a birthday cake for the Liberal MLA and a giant wrap up party later.

It is all about vote buying and to hell with the taxpayer.
