PBS provides valuable service to all

Mitt Romney has said he would cut the funding for public broadcasting. PBS offers so much more than children's programs. It's a main source of educational and impartial information. PBS is 50 percent of my daily viewing. There are no better presentations than any of the series by Ken Burns. Personal interview programs like Tavis Smiley and Charlie Rose bring us firsthand exposure to some of the controversial and popular persons of the current generations. I enjoyed the last interviews with Steve Jobs especially. The homebound can travel to exotic places on the many travel programs available. And don't forget “Antiques Roadshow.”

I hope the powers that be will give the issue of not funding PBS serious thought before canceling support. Those of us who contribute can only cover so much of the yearly budget. PBS benefits everyone. Watch it more and you'll see how valuable this service is to all of us — young and old, rich and poor.
