Scanning this Whitehouse press release on Obama's nomination of a new Chairman for the National Endowment for the Arts. Dr. Jane Chu has an impressive resume. And she's a pianist. Love the idea of a musician at the helm. But I can't stop fixating on her PhD. It's not in Musicology. It's not in Sociology. It's not in Philosophy. It's not in Economics. What is her PhD in? Philanthropic Studies.
