Cutting down on culture is a worrying sign for an entire nation in my humble opinion. A good friend works there and in parallell to the economy of the California state I would say the previous warnings about California going bankrupt is becoming a unstoppable fact.

Don't worry. The economic stimulis bill has provisions for theatre, dance, and I'm sure opera.
I appreciate you sentiments, and don't mean to sound sarcastic, but "culture" just dosn't rate real high on the list when you're talking about unemployment numbers like we have now.
