Will This Prove to Be the Tipping Point?

The Oakland Tribune publishes my letter to the editor. This may not be the beginning of the end for the Bush administration. But I say with confidence that it is the end of the beginning of its dissolution.


Grotesque proposal

THE IDEA that the Bush administration wants to cut, and ultimately terminate, funding for NPR and PBS — two things that actually work — while continuing to mindlessly pour money into the Iraq debacle is grotesque.

I do not think everything I hear or see on these two entities is wise and good. But compared to mainstream radio and mainstream TV, NPR and PBS are magnificent, superior by several orders of magnitude.
