Good News Thursday

One sometimes get a little skewed in one’s thinking here in our lovely nation’s capital.  Today I learned that not only (and definitely contrary to the prevailing thought here) that not only are there more artists than lawyers in the US (2 million to 1 million – keep hope alive!), but that the DC area ranks fourth in number of artists living/working in a major metropolitan area (predictably behind LA, NYC, and Chicago).  This was reported by the Washington Post today here.

Of course, we’re still making less, but we are being recognized as a major economic powerhouse.  Whatever, I’ll take it! Oh, and our numbers are growing from in the previous census. Must be the ubiquity of the digital camera and the obsolescence of any serious training to master it, as seen here. (wink, wink)
