Sign this petition please, and help save funding for one of the last true media stations on the radio...

"Your answer is silly. What'd do you want the song to do? End world hunger?
It's a fucking Phish song, some of them are very complex compositions, some are not.

This one with its complex vocal arrangement falls right in between.
But that and a hook aren't enough so I'll let Trey know his songs have to start giving out handys." RJ

NPR will live on, even without gov't funding...  Individual stations get very very little direct money from the gov't...  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Public_Radio#Funding

But the current rhetoric is a bunch of clap-trap...  If anything, it is Fox trying to discredit one of its main rivals in news gathering and dissemination.

Interesting, people are upset about what little funding NPR (CPB) gets, but they are unswayed by the fact that Fox is owned (and funded) by an Aussie and a Saudi (among others)...  I guess tax-payer money going to pay a media outlet to influence the populace is bad, while foreign capital paying a media outlet to influence is OK...  Interesting...

Oh! That! No, no, no, you're not ready to step into The Court of the Crimson King. At this stage in your training an album like that could turn you into an evil scientist.
