To the editor:
David Koch pledged $100 million in 2008 to renovate the New York State Theatre in Lincoln Center, a theater that is now named for him. He also has been a donor and trustee of the American Ballet Theater in Lincoln Center for 25 years.
Thank you for your support of the arts, Mr. Koch. However it is difficult to reconcile these facts with your support of Gov. Sam Brownback, who has gutted arts funding in the state of Kansas. Could you possibly exert a little of your considerable influence with the governor on behalf of the arts?
