Secretary of the Arts?
Quincy Jones is putting together a petition to have a cabinet position for Secretary of the Arts. Many countries have a culture minister. Jones asserts that the arts play as an important role as Education, Commerce, etc. Others think that having a culture minister could actually hinder the wide variety of artists and disciplines. They think the NEA and other government funding organizations as they exist are enough. What do you think?
