Last night, Kathy Cahill reports, some guy in his 20s knocked on her door in Roslindale and said he was soliciting donations for WGBH. WGBH? "Fraudulent?" she asked.
"We really are coming to your door!" WGBH enthuses.
The station has joined the ranks of politicians, cable companies and Jehovah's Witnesses and unleashed a brigade of door-to-door solicitors, "reminding our neighbors of the important part they play in keeping public radio and public television available to everyone in New England."
They've even posted photos and ID numbers of the canvassers that you can print out and tape to your side of the door for you to check when somebody comes knocking.
