I’ve never used this blog as a political forum.  That’s just not the intent of this space.                The intent is to provide a place to swap life lessons.

Well, I’m choosing to blur the lines a bit.

My name is Lisa and I’m a Public Radio supporter.

While so many Americans pay close attention (hopefully) to the budget compromises going on in Washington, DC – one I invite you to pay special attention to relates to the future of Public Radio.

Here’s a Statement from Jeff Hunter, President of (our local) Friends of Public Radio:

On February 11th, 2011, a resolution was introduced in the House of Representatives that would completely eliminate funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. If enacted, H.R. 1 would seriously affect public radio and television in the United States and here in the Cape Fear region. Read more here.

What you can do: We urge all WHQR listeners who care about its future to inform yourself and let your views be known: Find out what you can do here.

We all know that every budget requires juggling and often very difficult choices.  I hope you’ll join me in becoming involved in these national choices.
