What about people that do not watch PBS, or TV for that matter? Oh wait, it's for the good of everyone, which means that if the government believes that it is for the good of the people, the government can by god throw everyone into a pot and force us to pay for it.
When you look at it on a large scale, and not just PBS, it truly is scary thinking.
