GOP to pull the plug on PBS. Yes, again.

Well, it's a new year, and that means it's time once again to try and stop drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, block the dismantling of Social Security and Medicare, and save Public Broadcasting from the chopping block. Again.

MoveOn has a petition to sign (link above), and it's worked once before. You might recall the rather impressive appearance of Big Bird in DC with reams and reams of paper containing the signatures of more than a million people, if memory serves. But you can't shame the shameless, and the neo-fascists just waited 'till they thought it was safe to try it again.

On the positive side, we only have to do this for one more year. I hope. Sign up, pass it on, and let's see if we can't make it another million signatures. I'm doing my part.
