Geese are the absolute dirtiest water fowl within close contact with humans. The fecal remains spread bacteria and disease. All the geese huggers get their panties in a twist yet these are the same knuckleheads that feed the geese.

Here's a thought. Lets tax all things art to fund arts and cultural districts. Tax the art, tax the artist, tax the supplies, lax the patrons, tax the dealers, tax, the galleries, etc., etc.
Sin taxes, particularly tobacco tax, are not sustainable. Prices go up, people quit smoking or purchase on the black market, taxes revenue declines, no more money for the arts...
Additionally, the tax should benefit those who are being taxed. Generally speaking, most smokers couldn't care less about art and cultural districts. Generally, the arts and cultural districts are patronized by the upper middle class to wealthy. Therefore, tax those who will directly benefit from this publicly funded entity.
