    Threat to CPB Funding in the News Again

    It's interesting, and somewhat ironic, that 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Public Broadcasting Act and the creation of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. In his remarks at the time, President Lyndon B. Johnson said, "It announces to the world that our nation wants more than just material wealth; our nation wants more than a 'chicken in every pot.' We in America have an appetite for excellence, too. While we work every day to produce new goods and to create new wealth, we want most of all to enrich man's spirit. That is the purpose of this act."

  • Those TV Drug Ads Distract Us From The Medical Care We Need

    As I stood up to end our visit, Frank indicated he had one more question.

    "You know those commercials for Cialis?" he asked. "Would that be all right for me to try?"

    Here we go with the bathtubs again, I think to myself. Toned silver-hairs in side-by-side bathtubs on a deck somewhere looking out at the sunset.

    Give me a break.
