You REALLY don't know much about anything, do you mullets?

You're just not very knowledgeable.

Worse, you have a sneering, anti-intellectual streak that renders your posts meaningless, pretty much.

You should go volunteer at your church, or something.

Blogging about current issues is too way over your head.

Read the following. I think it qualifies at least Bill Decatur as one of the "best and brightest."

"The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) is annually ranked as one of the top art schools in the United States. U.S. News & World Report ranked RISD first amongst Fine Arts programs, above Yale University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Within subdivisions of Fine Arts, the school was ranked 1st in Fashion Design, graphic design, interior Architecture design, glass, and industrial design, 2nd in jewelry design, and printmaking; and 3rd in ceramics, multimedia, painting, photography, and sculpture."

YSU has a prestigious music school and a respected engineering program; Decatur is familiar with Ohio, having worked at Ohio U. and Akron.

Come on, guys!

If you're gonna post here, do at least a little background!

Gotta agree with DefeatSBB5, arts are important. I live in the county with the No. 1 school district in the whole country and there is HEAVY emphasis on the arts, along with advanced mathematics and science.

And this:

". . . the following original by-laws [of the RISD] set forth these following primary objectives:

First. The instruction of artisans in drawing, painting, modeling, and designing, that they may successfully apply the principles of Art to the requirements of trade and manufacture.

Second. The systematic training of students in the practice of Art, in order that they may understand its principles, give instruction to others, or become artists.

Third. The general advancement of public Art Education, by the exhibition of works of Art and of Art school studies, and by lectures on Art."

Obviously, when you're on the Forbes List of the 20 most miserable Cities in the United States you're not going to get any where near attracting the best and the brightest in any field, and the brain drain continues...
