I have listened to NPR every day that I’m in the car on my way into work for as long as I can remember. I have fond memories of hearing Morning Edition in the car as a kid whenever my dad drove me in the morning (which was very rarely – my bike got a good workout.) Last year house Republicans tried to kill funding for NPR and PBS – it was defeated.
They are trying again this year. Stuff like this always baffles me when I see what our tax dollars are being used for. If you are like me and are a NPR (or PBS) fan, here’s an easy way to sign a petition to tell Congress to save NPR and PBS again this year.
