They Say I Made A Difference

Thursday, June 30, 2005 | 0 Comments

Although many of you may have already heard the news, I thought that I would share it anyway- the budget cut that congress was considering for public broadcasting didn't go through! sent me an email last Friday to let me know that I made a difference.

"In an unexpected move yesterday afternoon, the House of Representatives approved a measure to restore $100 million of funding for NPR, PBS and local public stations. Republican leaders were proposing to slash $200 million from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, but you helped stop them."

To any of you that also decided to take action on this matter, thanks! Because now that we don't have cable, we are going to need public broadcasting more than ever!

Maria- Educational things are almost always the first on the chopping block which is so sad.

Jac- you didn't even say they were for me in the post!

Lyvvie- thank goodness for technology, heh?

The Doc- My older brother and I used to watch that show together. It was one of the few times he wasn't punching me for something.

ESC- Yeah! We did it!! We did it!! Thanks so much!
