ezs note:  In case you missed it, your local friendly knothead Donald Trump has proposed zeroing out NPR's annual budget.  Granted, it's a longshot, but it could happen. The station WFDD gave us this news to enlighten us.  The least we can do is 1) sign the petition (I did) and 2) make a donation to our local station.
