Picks and Pans Main: Tube

I'VE THUS FAR AVOIDED COMMENTING on the flap over government funding for public broadcasting, because from the very start this argument has taken on overtones of politics and class—and no one has ever accused me of having either. But I would like to make one point: if all PBS did was provide imaginative, values-intensive children's programming, it would be well worth its annual stipend. It's just so typical of the lunacy in Washington that, surrounded on all sides by obscene overspending, our elected officials would unerringly fix on eliminating one program that provides value to taxpayers.
