Subject: RE: BS: NPR: You want fries with that pledge?
Not to be snarky, it's an honest question---but who is getting educated and motivated by public radio? I only know local radio for certain, and it is decidedly entertainment (and biased entertainment at that).
I am not making any sort of Dickensian argument, nor do I feel that scholarship money would be a black hole. I do, however, know that the "Whoopee" quotient has become way too much on our local NPR. It was a base hit and they're cheering like it's a home run.
