: Excellent point! I agree that it is important for the entertainment industry to make their concerns known to the government. Doesn't the Animation union, SAG, etc. employ a lobbyist in Washington? Recently, I have written several letters to my representatives about this PBS/Nelvana issue. I have not recieved a single response. What do you think we need to do as a community of arteests to make our concerns known to the public? To get the positive media coverage we need? Is it possible to question the media machine without offending those in power? Every day comedians like George Carlin and Dennis Miller question the inconsistency's within our society through humor and entertainment. Why can't the "animation community" do the same? Or is that term a complete oxymoron?
I think it's always easier to speak to people in the language they understand. In the case of our elected officials, a loss of $13 billion going offshore has gotta be considered significant. Money talks.
