Schuyler, I think you've got that a bit garbled -- the main "far
right-winger" trying to cut off funds was NY's vaunted Mayor Rudy
Giuliani, the fellow some folks thought would make an ideal presidential
candidate. And it wasn't all arts funding, it was simply closing down the
Brooklyn Museum, one of our city's, in fact, our country's most splendid
institutions. (And folks doing New York's Museum tour shouldn't miss it --
aside from the special exhibitions, including often photography, they have
wonderful things like early American furniture and appliances, early
Egyptian furniture and appliances, sublime sculpture and artifacts of
North American native peoples .... and so forth.)

Some early Philistines were in it with him, but Rudy was leading the band
(in his time out from flaunting his mistress around town).
