One of the reasons that I am the person I am today is because I was able to watch awesome shiz like this on PBS when I was a little child. There is nothing that can make up for a lack of early childhood education; not all children are born into circumstances that let them grasp the universe, the world, the different cultures, the choices, the importance of kindness and education, or how to hook up phrases and clauses.
This was good stuff. And it made me understand that there were choices on how to be. How to think. How to speak. I knew so many cool things before I ever left the house to go to kindergarten. I learned to read!
Mitt Romney, frankly, doesn’t care. And he wouldn’t be able to kill PBS if he tried, even if by some horrible twist of fate he actually got to be President. We wouldn’t let it happen.
