And yeah, 'Are You Being Served'... grew up watching that on Channel 11, WTTW out of Chicago. Best damn Public Television station I've ever seen. Great show too!

Ha ha!  Actually it is very, very much the opposite.  It's "Public" in that people donate to get what "they" want broadcast. Which usually is clean shows for children, sitcoms that are made for people that don't drool on themselves, etc.

Not "Public", as in Red as you suggest, where the government takes your money, then provides you with "Public TV" or something or requires you to pay.

Also, even more away from socialism by the fact that most funding for public TV actually comes from corporate donations.  There are some government agencies that donate (like the National Science Foundation) and funding also comes from viewers that donate money directly.

Wouldn't that give the impression that AROS zealots - the classname for which remains a secret, but given the famous, somewhat provocative Kitty I'm going to call "furries" - regard AROS as highly camp, rather than free?
