The irony of layoffs and donations
Ironic! The Walt Disney Co. plans to lay off 54 Glendale workers (“Disney files layoff notices,” March 16).
The same company will donate $2.5 million to the Red Cross (“Disney donates $2.5M to Japan,” March 16).
This money could be used to pay these workers.

Public broadcasting will prevail
I have been a fan of National Public Radio ever since I was introduced to this noteworthy network by a friend. And as long as I can remember, NPR has been targeted and criticized by some politicians or groups, just as it is now.
NPR keeps me informed by providing the most comprehensive news coverage. They educate me with their reviews of books, arts, movies and much more, and they have some of the very best commentators on the air.
I can go on and on.
NPR, so far, has survived all the attacks and flourished and I am sure they will prevail through the current one too, as will PBS, another great public service organization.
