    Default Reading Rainbow

    Not sure where exactly this should go but....



    Reading Rainbow Reaches Its Final Chapter

    Reading Rainbow comes to the end of its 26-year run on Friday;
    Very sad for me, since I grew up with this show. But also...

    Grant says the funding crunch is partially to blame, but the decision to end Reading Rainbow can also be traced to a shift in the philosophy of educational television programming. The change started with the Department of Education under the Bush administration, he explains, which wanted to see a much heavier focus on the basic tools of reading — like phonics and spelling.
    I find that to be absolute bullshit. Knowing how to read is all well and good, but encouraging people to read is important as well. This show has a good deal to do with my own love of reading, and I almost can't imagine my life with that love.

    Lastly... Old Theme Song
    I have given pleasure to the world because I have such a beautiful ass!

    I was very saddened by this as well. what a fantastic show.
    May you have warm words on a cold evening,
    A full moon on a dark night,
    And the road downhill all the way to your door.
