Call to Action: Save Sesame Street

Okay, boys and girls, who here loves Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, the Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch? Hands?
Put your hands down and place them on your mice and click over to MoveOn.org to sign the petition to Save NPR and PBS. A House panel recently voted to eliminate all public funding for NPR and PBS over the next two years, starting with a full pull-out from commercial-free children’s programming.
Whuh huh? Yes, you read that right. The same Republican-lead, tit-fearing government that keeps screaming, “But what about the children?!?” wants to stop using tax dollars to fund Sesame Street and Reading Rainbow and Arthur, leaving us only the McDonald’s Coca Cola all-sugar Funtime Hour on FOX.
Go. Sign. Pass it on.
