Dear Dan Wieden

You think the arts are wonderful. You think that Portland arts organizations deserve more money. Well, Mr. Wieden, why don't you and your rich buddies dig into your hefty net worths and endow a fund that will support these organizations, instead of taking $35 a year from every adult Portlander above the poverty line? Your company reportedly makes a profit of $150 million a year. $12 million a year is probably your office party budget. Come on, big guy. Noblesse oblige, and all that.

To Mr. Wieden's credit Jack, I'm certain that W+K and Dan himself give generously to the community. I don't know any numbers off hand, but W+K has been good to the City of Portland.
