The most rewarding part was the successes that we had - the political, legal, and legislative successes. Because they came in spite of the problems. When the problems are enormous and yet you win occasionally, the times that you win become very satisfying. Because the effort to keep you from winning was so strong. So that was a major help.
And every once in a while - not too often - but every once in a while there would be something on television that was spectacular for children, like the ABC after-school specials... The vice president for programming of ABC, would say... 'These are on the air because of Action for Children's Television.' It's very unusual for the industry to give a group like us the credit for that... And whenever we got credit for something extraordinary, that was very satisfying, too.
