Memo to Trump: Why not to kill the NEA

To: Donald J. Trump, 45th president of the United States

From:  Chris Jones, Tribune critic

Re:  The National Endowment for the Arts


A modest proposal, Mr. President:  Don't kill the National Endowment for the Arts.

Stay the murderous hand of Steve Bannon.  Make Mike Pence ponder awhile.  Tell the Heritage Foundation, thank you very much for all your advice, but you are your own man when it comes to this one.  You are the president.  You can do these things.
