Is it so surprising, in light of the main article in last Sunday's (2/18)Globe
entertainment section?

I was amazed that PBS has cut funding for and effectively cancelled (if I read the
story correctly) Mystery! one of GBH's mainstays for many years.

Query: Is the Pat Mitchell of PBS the Pat Mitchell who used to be the entertainment
reporter @ WBZ before Joyce Kulhawik?
