Sigh. Sometimes I wax nostalgic for the fiscal conservatism of the Clinton presidency..

"President Bush will seek a big increase in the budget of the National Endowment for the Arts...Administration officials, including White House budget experts, said that the president would propose an increase of $15 million to $20 million for the coming fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1. That would be the largest increase in two decades and far more than the most recent increases approved by Congress, about $500,000 for 2003 and $5 million for this year...."

Mark your calendars...
