'Postcards from Buster' Funding Cut

The PBS (search) kids show "Postcards from Buster" (search) — which caused a stir this spring with an episode about a lesbian couple who were parents — had all its federal funding cut late last Friday.

A House appropriations committee voted not to give Ready to Learn (search), the educational TV program that funds "Buster," any of the $23.3 million the White House had requested.
