    Big Bird is more real than Romney's budget plans
    Mitt Romney may have won the first presidential debate, but what stuck in many people's minds was his threat to fire Big Bird. Apparently, Mr. Romney thinks America's debt problem can be fixed by picking up pennies along Sesame Street. Pressed to explain...
  • $450 million for PBS? Money well spent

    Sal D'Avella's letter on Mitt Romney's budget proposal proves once again that one can attack or defend any idea ("Move over, Big Bird," Oct. 11). Four-hundred-fifty million dollars could indeed hire a lot of teachers. However, did Mr. D'Avella do any...

  • Thanks to presidential debate, Big Bird is today's word on the street

    OK, now, let me see. There are nearly 315 million people living in the United States, and the Center for Public Broadcasting gets $445 million a year from the federal budget. That means each person pays a little more than a buck a year, or, to be a bit...

    Aren't the Supremes ready for their close-up?
    Unless you waited in line for five days to get one of the coveted audience seats at the Supreme Court, you probably experienced this week's oral arguments on same-sex marriage as something of a Ken Burns film. Websites and TV broadcasters played audio of...
  • Ohio gets deluge of spin from Obama and Romney

    Be glad you don't live in Ohio. It's a fine old state with pretty towns, friendly people and a fairly healthy economy. But over the last six months, its citizens have endured a volume of political advertising unequaled in the history of Western...
  • Change takes time, Maryland voters say

    Change takes time, Maryland voters say

  • Here's where to go for the best GOP convention TV

    Here's where to go for the best GOP convention TV
    Forget the broadcast networks of ABC, NBC and CBS. And forget PBS, too, unless you are part of the minority that doesn't have cable or online access. Public television simply doesn't have the resources any longer to do any kind of original, first-rate...
