Fortunately, we have the government to save society from selfish people like me who, if given a choice, would keep our money rather than support such worthy causes.
From http://www.nea.gov/grants/recent/04grants/Services.html :
Northwest Native American Basketweavers
To support the 2004 Annual Gathering of Basketweavers. The regional gathering will honor 35 Native-American basketweavers, their apprentices, and families by showcasing their basketry, demonstrating artistic styles and techniques, and producing a public art market day.
So you personally gave them abouy $0.07. So what? Given the choice between this and and a lot of the other crappy places our lovely senators (both Dem and Rep.) choose to spend money our money (hmmm, $25,000 to Native Americans, $87,000,000,000 to Iraq) I'm sorry they didn't get $50,000.
