Quoting Tony Bennett Quoting Winston Churchill

Exploring the Arts is a foundation singer Tony Bennett set up with his wife, Susan, to fund arts education in New York public schools.

Recently, Mr. Bennett was quoted as saying:  “The cuts in arts education have been devastating.  Whenever there’s a war, they cut money from the arts. I think about Winston Churchill’s comment when someone suggested cutting arts funding and he replied, ‘What else are we fighting for?’ ”

I love this quote, even if no one can substantiate it to the letter.  I believe the sentiment was there.
