“Why lobby for more education funds? cost-per-student has doubled in the past 20 years, while the quality of education has gone down. More money doesn't solve the problem.”

“Your post (and your point) is absolutely on-target. Of course he won't, he doesn't have a clue.”

“Right. Really, he should have not hung a painting about one subject at all but rather taken a poll of every injustice in mankind's history and had a representation of each painted in so as not to give the art loving population of the united states the mistaken impression that he is not even handed.”
