Re: OT (or maybe not) National Endowment of the Arts...

 Subject:  NPR & PBS Funding
 On NPR's Morning Edition, Nina Totenberg reported that if the Supreme
 Court supports Congress to cut the budget of the National Endowment of
 the Arts, it is in effect the end of NEA. This situation creates great
 concerns about Congressional funding for creative arts in America, since
 NEA provides major support for NPR (National Public Radio), PBS (Public
 Broadcasting System), and numerous other creative and performing arts.
 If NEA is lost or weakened, our lives will be similarly diminished. 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.
 Currently, taxes from the general public for PBS equal $1.12 per person
 per year, and the National Endowment for the Arts equals $.64 a year. A
 January 1995 CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll indicated that 76% of Americans
 wish to keep funding for PBS, third only to national defense and law
 enforcement as the most valuable programs for federal funding.
 Please add your name to this list and forward it to friends that you
 believe are in favor of what this stands for. The full list will be
 forwarded to the President of the United States, the Vice President, and
 the Speaker of the House, whose office has in the past been the
 instigator of the action to cut funding to these worthwhile programs.
 This petition is being passed around the Internet. Please add your name
 to it so that funding can be maintained for the NEA, NPR, and PBS.
 Please keep the petition rolling. Do not reply to me. Sign your name and
 locale to the list and forward it to others to sign.  If you prefer not
 to, please send the list to the email address given below. This is being
 forwarded to numerous 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.
 This is for anyone who thinks NPR and PBS deserve $1.12/year of their
 taxes. If you sign, please forward the list to others. If not, please
 don't kill it. If you happen to be the 150th, 200th, 250th, etc., signer
 of this petition, please forward a copy to:
 wein2688@blue.univnorthco.edu This way we can keep track of the lists
 and organize them. Forward this to everyone you know, and help us to
 keep these programs alive. Thank you.
 IMPORTANT NOTE: It is preferable that you COPY the entirety of this
 letter and then PASTE it into a NEW outgoing message, rather than simply
 forwarding it. In  your new outgoing message, add your name to the
 bottom of the list, then send it on. Or, if the option is available, do
