At least the wealth confiscated from me under threat of deadly force is going to good uses. I am particularly proud to be an invountary contributer to the art of basketweaving. I can't bare to think of what kind of world we would have if this important art were not subsidized by my hard-earned money. 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
Omak, WA
$25,000
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.
