To the letters editor:

Deputy Mayor Patricia Harris' "non-threat" to arts executives demonstrates one more reason why government should not fund the arts ("A Deputy Mayor Hits Culturati on Giff Giving," May 31). This incident shows how taxpayer money finds its way into political campaign chests by the route taxpayer to public coffers to arts executive to campaign chest. Another reason why government should not fund the arts: your tax money should not be used to support art of which you disapprove or just don't like. It is a gross violation of freedom of association and freedom of expression to force people to pay for any art other than what they voluntarily choose. Another reason: politicians fancy themselves art critics and use art criticism to score political points. Remember Rudy Giuliani and the Brooklyn Museum?
