In March 30th editorial, Nicholas Kristof discusses the importance of the humanities, in light of the President's plan to eliminate all funding for the National Endowment of the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

He specifically cites Peter Singer's influence on the humanities and references the effect of his 1971 protest of the sale of eggs from hens raised in small cages.

"Singer, now a Princeton University professor, is a wisp of a man who defeated an agribusiness army with the power of his ideas and the muscle of the humanities."
