For the Arts

A lot of people I know don't think celebrities should get involved in politics, but I think that there's no people more perfectly poised to influence others than celebrities. Now, I would like to clarify that in some cases being a celebrity doesn't qualify said celebrity to speak on political issues - like some guy who plays a doctor on a show like Grey's Anatomy trying to influence medical issues based on 'what he plays on TV' - but I did think it was really cool that Josh spoke up for the arts. The arts are essential, and they are dying. It's even worse here in Canada than it is in the US. So as someone who loves live performance... good on ya, JG!
