Silliness. Worrying about PBS is like crowing that you are being frugal with your budget because the change you found under the couch is now going in the cookie jar. Meanwhile, say, your toilet is leaking 800 gallons a day, adding $1K/month to your water bill.

But hey, I didn't waste any money on a plumber! And that 6 cents is safely stored away for a rainy day!
============================================

While I understand your point.

Not worrying about PBS is a bit like not worrying about the 100.00 cell phone bill, the 100.00 water bill, the 100.00 a month eating out bill, etc. because they are small amounts, when the rent is 1000.00, the insurance is 1000.00, the credit card bill is 20,000.00.

Dropping the cell to a less expensive plan, reducing the amount of water used, and reducing or eliminating the eating out will make a dent in the credit card bill.

Just because an amount in the budget is small compared to other expendatures doesn't mean it should be looked at.

I, personally, think PBS is worth keeping, but maybe it's funding could be reduced.
