PBS, NPR and the arts

Subject: PBS, NPR and the arts

On NPR's Morning Edition last week, Nina Tottenberg
said that if the
Supreme Court supports Congress, it is in effect the
end of the
National Public Radio (NPR), National Endowment for
the Arts (NEA)
and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS).

PBS, NPR and the arts are facing major cutbacks in
funding. In spite
of the efforts of each station to reduce spending
costs and
streamline their services, some government officials
believe that
the funding currently going to these programs is too
large a portion
of funding for something which is seen as
notworthwhile.

The only way that our representatives can be aware of
the base of
support for PBS and funding for these types of
programs is by making
our voices heard.

Please add your name to this list and forward it to
friends who
believe in what this stands for.

This list will be forwarded to the President and the
Vice President
of the United States. This petition is being passed
around the
Internet. Please add your name to it so that funding
can be
maintained for NPR, PBS, the NEA.

HOW TO SIGN FORWARD: IT'S EASY
Please keep this petition rolling. Do not reply to me.
Please sign
and forward to others to sign. If you prefer not to
sign, please
send to the e-mail address indicatedbelow.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT DUPLICATES. This is being forwarded
to several
people at once to add their names to the petition. It
doesn't matter
if many people receive the same list as the names are
being managed.
This is for anyone who thinks NPR, PBS and the NEA is
a worthwhile
expenditure of $1.12/year of their taxes.

Ifyou happen to be the 150th, 200th, 250th, etc.,
signer of this
petition, please forward a copy to:

wein2688@blue.univnorthco.edu
This way we can keep track of the lists and organize
them. Forward
this to everyone you know, and help us to keep these
programs alive.
Thank you!

entirety of
this letter and then COPY it into a new outgoing
message, rather

message, add your
name to the bottom of the list, then send it on.
