Step forward, music legend and producer Quincy Jones who is urging President-elect Barack Obama to create a ministry of culture. One of the best ways to promote and preserve the cultural health of this country would be to give the arts Cabinet-level status. A petition has emerged and is making its way across the cyberscape.
