PBS Kids?

On National Public Radio this morning (I told you I like to listen to all points of view!), the announcer mentioned that on tonight’s PBS program, “Now,” Bill Moyers will focus on the Enron scandal. She also mentioned one of his guests will be, in her words, “oil tycoon T-Bone Pickens.” T-Bone, eh? I think she may be confusing “Now” with another PBS program, “Clifford the Big Red Dog.” This is completely understandable. Both feature short morality plays, develop fictional storylines and offer characters whose shadings on the spectrum are plain for all to see.

“Clifford,” however, is the only one which is honest and entertaining - clearly the better program.
