Arts are crucial to democracy and should be available to anyone–from Bill Moyers Journal

From his recent interview with John Lithgow:

In a brief conversation Moyers had about poetry with a stranger:  "We're not talking about poetry to escape from reality, but as a way to cope with the world as it is."

From the PBS pledge break during the show:  "We at Public Television believe that the life of the mind, the journey of the spirit, the arts–are crucial to the health of democracy and should be available to anyone with a television."

Doesn't this sentence make even more sense if the reader omits the last three words?
