Re "Area arts groups need to feel your gratitude" (Editorials, April 25): Everyone in the Sacramento region should indeed try to participate in the Arts Day of Giving on Monday. The hoped-for goal for the event is between $100,000 and $500,000. How pitiful.
The Bee notes that the region doesn't have many Fortune 500 companies. Yet, somehow in this economy, Mayor Kevin Johnson and his cronies are able to find more than $400 million for a new downtown arena to keep the Kings.
That is 1,000 times what the arts groups hope for! Keep the Kings? Absolutely. Allow arts groups to disappear? Absolutely not.
