corPARAnoid: Government funding of PBS is only 6%. They make millions in royalties and other funds, Big Bird won't bite the dust or be begging on street corners, you can sleep easy tonight.
Tax evaders? How about making Warren Buffett cough up the billions of dollars in taxes he owes? Ooops, sorry I forgot - he is an Obama buddy so he gets a free pass from the IRS.
As I said before, Big Bird is fine, go to bed and get some sleep, you sound exhausted.
