Big bird

"PBS and NPR, here we go again. Apparently the ever-lasting platform planks of the Republican Party are protect the unborn, protect the nation from bad guys and attack public broadcasting.

I could write about PBS's trusted journalism, about the minute slice of the federal budget pie it takes for the good it does or how the Republicans galvanize the left every time they do this. I won't. Instead, I'm going to interview Big Bird." [Forbes interviews Big Bird]

Visit 170 Million Americans For Public Broadcasting to find out how you can fight for public broadcasting like NPR and PBS.

Tickets go on AmEx, Fan Club, MSG & Bowery presale at 11am for the April 13th TV on the Radio show at Radio City Music Hall. You can of course use your American Express card or you can use the password "9light".

With the aging exceptions of Frank Deford, Carl Castle and Robert Seigel, NPR needs to get some men on the air that don't talk like sissies.
