In keeping with the recent and nauseating American notion that the only things that really matter in life are one’s bank account, one’s Twitter feed and how many people one can squash in the pursuit of one’s own goals, Washington state senator Karen Keiser recently proposed selling the state’s public art in order to fund college scholarships for low-income students. A noble goal, but a rather silly proposal, as The Stranger‘s Jen Graves points out, succinctly. There is, of course, one obvious solution staring the state in the face, but SOCIALISM TEA PARTY SOCIALISM. (Jen Graves, The Stranger)
