As per Stephen Jablonsky’s post, an increasing number of us are at schools where, if we do not receive a major grant, then our cases for tenure are in jeopardy. (Nowadays, that essentially means one must find another career.) I want—and need—my national societies to inform its members of the risks, and to help defend the NEH. 

All best,

This is not a political issue. It is a matter of civics. The money that the Federal Government spends is our money and it behooves every citizen to be aware of how it is being spent or misspent. An enlightened electorate needs all the information it can get, especially in an age when main stream media seems more concerned with entertainment than edification. How we act on that information is a matter of personal conviction. I, for one, would love our government to declare war on ignorance.
