The Washington Post reports that as part of his budget-cutting measures, President Trump wants to pull the plug on the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. He also wants to privatize the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

As it happens, I love art and I love the humanities. In fact, I make my living in the humanities. On my view, the NEA, NEH, and CPB do more damage than they do good. Pulling the plug is just fine with me.
