In the event any of you readers ever watch PBS, I hope you saw or will take the time to watch "The Dust Bowl", another great Ken Burns production. Gives one perspective---what our forefathers (era of my parents, perhaps your grandparents)endured during the Great Depression.....(something we have avoided, so far, during the years since the Obama administration.) If our Congress doesn't get it together soon, we may understand first hand, as are many in Greece, Spain, etc., what "real" economic problems could create.

I caught the 2nd. episode tonight. Fantastic.
The conclusion is tomorrow---Wed., May 1, 2013
6:00 am AND AGAIN AT 10:00 PM (120 minutes)

Connecting with our past helps us understand today and gives concerns for our tomorrow, if we don't get it right!

See Channel 26 or check other stations in your purview!

If you are not a PBS watcher, you're missing sme wonderful television if yu are interested in history and current events!

Check it out. Now, I'm watching Frontline, the War on Terror--I've never watched before, but interesting. WILL SHOW AGAIN AT 2:30 A.M. ON Thursday.

Enjoy. Just think. Congress does not think PBS is worth the money.
