Arts supporters descended on Olympia to fight the governor's proposed cuts to Washington's arts budget. They won. Unfortunately, almost none of the money the state spends on "art" is actually spent on art.
And no one gives a shit about the Mariners either. Safeco Field sucks, Ichiro sucks, and we have better things to do than watch a bunch of overpaid millionaires run bases in tight polyester pants. Face facts: Baseball is stupid.
