The article ``We Need Public TV, and Public TV Needs Government Support,'' Jan. 13, opened my eyes to the fact that the new Republican Congress wants to take federal money away from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
I seldom have time to watch TV, but when I do, I turn PBS on first. My life has been touched by such shows as ``Sesame Street,'' ``I, Claudius,'' and ``Upstairs Downstairs.'' Bill Moyers and ``The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour'' have also given many thoughtful interviews throughout the years. Our lives would be greatly enriched by watching this TV station instead of the trash on regular TV. Katherine J. Box, Vista, Calif.
