To my knowledge, only those that depend entirely on federal funds, which I think aren't that many, New Yorkers being smarter than that. We enjoy the largesse of many philanthropic organizations and individuals, from our generous Mayor on down, left and right.

Marshall the economic argument -- the arts give back three dollars to every one invested, or whatever the number is -- but Republicans as constituted don't care about reason or reasons. This is political for them and all they want is power. So we simply run them out of office, and fast. I mean really: These idiots know what's best for our beloved country?
