Vested interest alert: I work for WNMU-TV, Public TV 13 for Michigan's Upper Peninsula & ne Wisc... Certainly, letting your sen/reps know is the best idea--for all the talk of corruption, etc., most of them still(or finally) are receptive to public opinion. Do your best to make it individual; not just a copy of a form letter. Tell them you support the concept of public broadcasting, that you watch it, that you support it financially and believe they should, too. Explain that you get from PBS what you can't find anywhere else. Then -- support your station! Many of us have fundraisers coming up in August, but don't wait until then. Write them a letter, if you can't afford to pledge, or give them a call. Tell them you like what they're doing (or that you don't--that's fine, too), and that you're behind them. The first thing will help stop anti-PBS (and by extension, *all* non-commercial ventures) legislation; the second will help some face another day. Sigh.
