Why I can't donate to PBS this time

No, it's not because Pledge Month comes every 3 weeks. It's because PBS is supposed to be educational TV, for crying out loud. But when it came on tonight, here was yet another quack selling a load of shit to the viewers.

This was a new one, Steve Lancelota, who was selling his Diet Code, which, he claims, is based on Da Vinci's Golden Ratio. Code? Da Vinci? Is this guy trying to ride certain coatails? Sure, Leonardo had lots of nutritional advice to give, hidden in a secret code, some 500 years ago.

Last night, they had some financial guru, with such sage advice as "your spouse is not really a financial asset."

If they want my money, they're going to have to broadcast a really good show, not the shit I can get from a Kwiki-Mart tabloid.
