Kansas edges out South Carolina

In what might be called a "race to the bottom" when it comes to state arts funding, Kansas seems to have "won" for the moment.

I heard positive things about yesterday's Arts Advocacy Day at the State House in Columbia, though nary a word from the hollow shell that remains of what once was our "newspaper of record," McClatchy-owned-and-gutted "The State." As for Kansas Governor Brownback's move, I do not know whether or not South Carolina's governor Nikki Haley has that kind of executive power; from what I'm given to understand about the relative lack of power vested in the executive branch in this state, I rather doubt it, but I certainly could be wrong.
