a government grant.>>

        But as taxpayers we all have a constitutional right to have some say in where
our money goes.......I'd rather my taxes went to support art & music, even if
it is a crucifix in a jar of urine.....than the CIA...which I find much more
offensive than anything Mapplethorp ever created......
