Oops! My previous comment was obviously intended for the segment on art school.

Mr. Lopate lamented that funding to the arts being first on the "chopping block" when governments deem it necessary to make cuts.

I would like to ask him, what would you cut first instead?

Medicare? Medicaid? SNAP? Regulatory agencies that play a vital role in protecting the public such as the FDA, USDA or EPA ?

Basic "three-R" education?

Maybe the vampires chose lemons instead of blood oranges to avert suspicion!

And would converting women to silk producers also help to reduce the Chinese population, or would the women still be able to have babies too?
