Secretary of the Arts

Hello all,

Think of the symbolism of creating a cabinet level position to reassert the country's commitment to the arts. To be seen and heard, we must be at the table. Here's our chance.

Quincy Jones has started a petition to ask President-Elect Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts. While many other countries have had Ministers of Art or Culture for centuries, the United States has never created such a position. We in the arts need this and the country needs the arts--now more than ever. Please take a moment to sign this important petition and then pass it on to your friends and colleagues.

If you care - pass it on: (if you tell two friends...and they tell two friends...and so on..and so on...) Only takes a moment, and if we in the arts community don't do it, who are we waiting for?:

So..... I have been blog-tagged by one of my FAV people/artist's in the world, Jessica Torrant. http://www.jessicatorrant.blogspot.com/

the rules:link to the person who tagged you > post the rules on your blog > write six random things about yourself > tag six people at the end of your post and link to them > let each person know they've been tagged

My six random things:

1. I am related to John C. Calhoun who fathered illegitimate child, Abraham Lincoln.

2. I was an art major in college and never took an art class in my life until sophomore year at College of Charleston.

3. I was once told I must marry a 12 year old Muslim boy while riding a camel in Egypt with him by the Sphinx. (I was 14 years old.) Apparently, if he touches me, I must then marry him in exchange for 3 goats. My aunt cussed him out in Arabic and that was the end of it.

4. I shortly thereafter was held in Customs in Cairo, Egypt since my visa had run out. (Again 14 years old with no parents in the country.) My uncle then cussed them out in Arabic and that was the end of that matter as well.

5. When I received my epidural with my second child, the anesthesiologist (maybe 25 years old) said, "Oops!" which nearly caused my husband to punch her in the face. "He said, 'You cannot say that while you are pushing a needle into my wife's spine!"

6. My heart rate is normally so low that it won't even register on the machine after I have been running hard on the treadmill for 30 minutes.

Now for the tagging:
