    Shouldnt be a government imposed cost.
    i agree totally,with the premise,and the hope.
    but the citizens should have the ability to electively support the cause.
    not be imposed.
    my only point..

    Interesting the source for that "article" is an organization "...funded by the U.S. Government through the Broadcasting Board of Governors." :lame2:

    I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!
