Engaging, Rather Than Rote, Public Television

 One of our public television channels (WITF) runs seemingly endless episodes of Masterpiece Theater. Another one (WVIA) runs Masterpiece Theater but also, as we just watched, "Art and the Brain," a beautiful and important explanation of mental processes in young and old. It also features "Homegrown Concerts." What a service! It's unfair for one "public" channel to run on automatic pilot when there's more to choose from out there.
