In the United States, PBS executives, managers, personalities not only dip into the public purse, but ask the public and corporations for donations. One has to wonder how much money PBS would have in the kitty if production was also volunteered. But I have the feeling that a lot of those PBS folks will be paying a thousand bucks a plate at an upcoming Democrat dinner with Bill Clinton.
