Brad DeMond asked about the use of "mecene" to mean "patron
of the arts". Brad, the word does indeed exist in this
context (direct from the Latin), and is correct usage here
in French Quebec, but I'd never heard the term before.
"Bienfaiteur" (benefactor) might work better for some
audiences. Who will be reading this thing anyway?
