THE PERFORMING ARTS IN AMERICA
Mr. KENNEDY. Mr. President, I would like to bring a recent article in the Washington Post to the attention of our colleagues. Michael Kaiser, who is the President of the Kennedy Center, has written a thoughtful and articulate article on the serious challenges facing the performing arts in America.
Mr. Kaiser is an impressive leader for the Kennedy Center. In the 2 years he has been its President, the Center has staged a broad range of programs in dance, music and drama and has significantly expanded its efforts to reach out through the arts to improve the lives of all Americans.
I commend all that Mr. Kaiser is doing so effectively, and I ask unanimous consent that his recent article be printed in the RECORD.
