I just read the first couple of paragraphs.  First they told us their race and age, and then they said they had to blow it up and start again.  I knew then I would probably be ill by the time I finished it so I quit while I was ahead.

I was going to comment about PBS and NPR but then I read DuckFace's post and he seems to say what I would say, regarding PBS.  It would be ditto for NPR, which is, along with the BBC World Service, my most listened to radio station.

Poor people can't donate, but they can watch and learn.  Nobody forces them to watch Big Brother.

That said, I have donated while both poor and not so poor.  I wanted that Red Dwarf T-shirt, dammit, and I didn't care what I paid for it.  It felt good to help, though, and I have done so since.
