NPR May Soon Mean No Public Radio

The House of Representatives voted today 228-192 in favor of cutting Federal funding to National Public Radio (NPR). The bill also blocks the use of Federal funds by local radio stations to purchase any content -- left, right, or center.  The bill especially hurts small broadcasters, according to the LA Times. Once again we end up with a few shekels in our pockets, if that, at considerable cost to our quality of life. And there is no resolution to the problems we face. It's ridiculous.
