According to the New Your Times, Brian Lamb, creator and head of CSPAN is stepping down. At Seventy he's more than justified. I write this blog more in judgement than praise but I can only speak with utmost praise of Mr, Lamb. I am extremely grateful for his peerless coverage of our nation's political and governmental life as well as it's exceptional coverage of books and American History. CSPAN gets no funding from the Federal Government yet puts so called public media to shame. (I know, public media knows no shame but if they had any, they'd feel it in relation to CSPAN.)
If we followed the example of the Japanese and elevated citizens to the estate of National Treasure, Brian Lamb would be my first candidate. I wish him well in retirement.
