Good thing KBOO doesn't receive public $

Okay, now let me qualify that. The public, as individual donors, send us most (80%) of our revenue.

But we receive no public money in the sense of government funds.  Not for several years now, and while it has had an impact, we've adjusted and are likely in a far better place financially than public stations (read: NPR, PBS) would be if these short-sighted and politically motivated cuts are enacted.
