sending the elevator back down
April 22, 2011
Both Alec Baldwin and Kevin Spacey are longtime advocates for government funding of the Arts. If you missed their testimony before the House Appropriations Subcommitee on the Interior earlier this month, you aren’t alone. They were kicked off the schedule because of preparations for a congressional shutdown. These speeches were delivered not to the subcommittee but to a crowd of advocates and fans.
Spacey uses a lovely metaphor – when we’ve achieved what we set out to achieve in our career of choice then we have an obligation to send the elevator back down.
