I clearly recall watching the first airing of "In The Life." It survived both the Clinton and Bush era anti-gay political activity and so I am curious what has caused its demise during the Obama administration -- Washington, D.C. politics is always complicated. I hope it has noting to do with the PBS funding being cut by Republicans.
