Tonight\’s \”Here and Now\” commentary goes out to all the U.S. Americans:


There\’s even a little acting. I smell Emmy….

I also need to clarify a point made on the original broadcast. The introduction to my commentary mentioned that I wanted to see the program \”cut.\” That\’s not really the case – I\’m merely lobbying for more parental involvement in the program. Either way, I can imagine the Wisconsin Public Television e-mail server is kindly accepting hate mail as we speak.

As Flannery O\’Connor said, \”you have to push as hard as the age that pushes against you.\”
