some good news

The National Endowment for the Arts as well as the National Endowment for the Humanities received a $170 million budget from the U.S. House of Representatives for 2010, nearly a 10 percent increase from their current $155 million budget.

The vote was 254 to 173.

The U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee's budget proposal for the cultural agencies calls for $161.3 million each. President Obama proposed $161.3 million for the NEA and $171.3 million for the NEH.


NYTE has won the Microsoft/Techsoup “Show Your Impact” contest, which gives them a grant of $5K in cash and $25K in software. Well done, Martin and Rochelle.

Our MMMQ takes us back to the early 70s, when punk rock was thrashing about getting born. Who, in those dark and distant days, first used the term and gave the sound a name?

1. Lester Bangs

2. Legs McNeil

3. Ed Sanders

4. Dave Marsh?

I always thought it was Lenny Kaye.
Second guess is Legs. No, Lester.

No, Legs.
