"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Who The Devil Was That ?

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Letter To Th Editor re Patron Of The Arts":

"By the way,until I asked I had no idea the extent of town generosity."

It's nice to see that there is precedent then for the Town to provide what they do. Maybe those that think art is a MorMac thing might get off their high-horses and realize that this not new.


Thank you for the prompt and positive response.

Support for the artist community in Aurora is not new.

We have had our own little theatre for longer than the artists association.

We have had an Art and Culture grant foundation for almost as long.

The town doesn't take credit for the community of artists in our midst but we have fostered and encouraged their initiative for as long as they have made their presence felt.

Writers ,photographers, theatre, all manner and styles of art have been encouraged by the town and space has been provided.

The duplication at Church Street School makes no sense. The Town's Leisure Services department and Library are more than willing to co-operate with staff at the centre to ensure duplication doesn't happen.

This week we learned remains of the budget for furnishings and fixtures for the museum was turned over to the Church Street school, when the building renovations were completed.

Part of that budget was earmarked for glass display cases for to complete the museum.

Still, there is no museum.

The chairman informed council, in a recent public meeting, the board did not make the decision to exclude the museum from the building.

He said "The Strategic Plan did it"

It was like saying; the devil made us do it.

Now the question is? which devil was that?

The one with red eyes, horns,a tail,and a three- pronged prod.

Or the one we know better than the one we don't.
