Rethinking the killing of public broadcasting

Since my post on the subject, I’ve been thinking of Tom’s comments, and watching as TiVo snags Thomas the Tank Engine, Bob the Builder, and Clifford for my nearly-two-year-old’s viewing pleasure. Then Peggy Noonan comes along with brilliant commentary on the continued need for PBS, just without the politics. Her suggestions are certainly some I’m sure everyone could live with. Get PBS out of the news and opinion business, and back to what made it so vital in the first place: science and the arts.

I am man enough to admit it when I’m wrong. So let’s keep PBS and NPR around; so long as they dump the political angles, and stick to the classics.
