same problem all over the wordl I guess (perhaps except Japan). Berlin has REGULAR disputes over the budget, one reason our governing mayor also being the secretary for Arts and Culture and all too often wants to push through these sometimes quite personal interests when others, including his own social democrats rather see that money go to other more urgent needs.
But of course there has never been and will never be a fight over funding our Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

Sounds like a generic problem with unique aspects in each city perhaps. You cannot currently send a star to Angelika because you have done so within the last week.

I would like to think the orchestra will always be there... I guess they need us to come out to the shows, though. Everyone is cutting down their personal budgets, so it's tough, but I still hope they survive.
