On NPR's Morning Edition, Nina Tottenberg announced that if the Supreme
Court supports Congress, it will, in effect, be the end of the National
Public Radio (NPR), National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and the
Public Broadcasting System (PBS). PBS, NPR and the arts are facing major
cutbacks in funding. In spite of the efforts of each station to reduce
spending costs and streamline their services, some government officials
believe that the funding currently going to these programs is too large
a portion of funding for something which is seen as not worthwhile. This
is for anyone who thinks NPR/PBS is a worthwhile expenditure of
$1.12/year of their taxes. The only way that our representatives can be
aware of the base of support for PBS and funding for these types of
programs is by making our voices heard. Please add your name to this
list and forward it to friends who believe in what this stands for. This
list will be forwarded to the President and the Vice President of the
United States. This petition is being passed around the Internet. Please
add your name to it so that funding can be maintained for NPR, PBS, and
the NEA. HOW TO SIGN: IT'S EASY: First SELECT all of the text in this
message, then COPY and PASTE it into a new email (DO NOT FORWARD). ADD
your name to the bottom of the list and SEND it to everyone in your
list. DON'T WORRY ABOUT DUPLICATES. This is being sent to several people
at once to add their names to the petition. It won't matter if many
people receive the same list as THE NAMES ARE BEING MANAGED. If you
decide not to sign, please don't kill it. Send it to the email address
listed here:

  If you happen to be the
150th, 200th, 250th, etc., signer of this petition, please forward a
copy to the above address. This way we can keep track of the lists and
organize them. Send this to everyone you know, and help us to keep these
programs alive. Thank you!
