To Henry, I would say this:  The federal funding that PBS has received has
fallen significantly in the last 10 years.  PBS is PUBLICLY funded more by
straight donations than by tax dollars.  When was the last time you gave to
your local PBS station.  Because so few people give, the corps have been able
to move in with their big bucks and control programming.  We as concerned
citizens should be very interested in supporting PBS financially rather
than giving up.
        Herb Schiller's book _Culture Inc._ is a criticism of the privitization
of public outlets like PBS.  I recommend it.  I also recommend turning on your
TV to PBS right now and calling in; it is telethon month.
                Support PBS.
