    are a lot of stupid people out there that think things like PBS and Big Bird are why we have a deficit.  They are very, very quick to believe that cutting PBS will fix all our problems.

    They also tend to believe that our big humongous oh my god it's so huge deficit is because of food stamps and foreign aid to countries that hate us.  It's not just Republicans who think that.  A lot of people really have never had the numbers pointed out to them in a believable way.  It just seems to make sense, so there.

    So good luck with the Big Bird thing.  If it works, it works.  Personally, I don't care about Big Bird.  My daughter hated it when she was a kid -- she wanted Disney videos and The Comfy Couch and the Pink Power Ranger when she was that age demographic.  Me?  I would absolutely hate to lose Nova, but the rest of it I don't care about very much.  Even if we lost Nova, we'd have the Science channel, which is a mediocre substitute, but it's 24 hours.
