Hey all,
Just wanted to share a little activism with you, read on.....

>NPR/PBS Petition - Quick Sign
>
>
>
>The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the issue of whether public funding
>to an artist can be linked with the idea of whether the art is'decent.'
>After the Robert Mapplethorpe "scandal" not so long ago, Congress passed
>a law that for an artist's art to receive public money via the National
>Endowment for the Arts, it must be deemed decent.
>
>On NPR Morning Edition this morning, Nina Tottenberg said that if the
>Supreme Court supports Congress, it is in effect the end of NEA.Then,
>there's the question of Congressional funding: Funding for NPR/NEA & PBS.
>
>
>
>PBS, NPR (National Public Radio), 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 not worthwhile.
>
>Currently, taxes from the general public for PBS equal $1.12 per person
>per year, and the National Endowment for the Arts equals $.64 a year.
>
>A January 1995 CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll indicated that 76% of Americans
>wish to keep funding for PBS, third only to national defense and law
>enforcement as the most valuable programs for federal funding.
>
>Each year, the Senate and House Appropriations committees each have 13
>subcommittees with jurisdiction over many programs and agencies. Each
>subcommittee passes its own appropriation bill. The goal each year is to
>have each bill signed by the beginning of the fiscal year, which is
>October
>
>1. 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
>of the United States, the Vice President of the United States, and
>Representative Newt Gingrich, who is the instigator of the action to cut
>funding to these worthwhile programs.
>
>This petition is being passed around the internet. Please add your name
>to it so that funding can be maintained for the NEA, NPR & PBS.
>
>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 indicated. This is being forwarded to several people at
>once to
>add their names to the petition. It won't matter if many people receive
>the
>same list as the names are being managed. This is for anyone who thinks
>NPR/PBS is a worthwhile expenditure of $1.12/year of their taxes, a
>petition follows.
>
>If you sign, please forward on to others. If not, please don't kill it
> -- send it to the email address listed here:
>
>wein2688 or kubi7975
>
>
>****If you happen to be the 150th, 200th, 250th, etc. signer of this
>petition, please forward a copy to: wein2688. 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.
