      They seem to choose Marathon subjects based on holidays and seasons, then fill in with assorted clusters like all-painting, a particular host all day, a vacation region, etc. So it's surprising that they omitted Cinco de Mayo. Perhaps there is a lack of Latino staff at PBS - I have no idea, nor do I have any emotional reaction to the programming choice. Just thought pizza-making enthusiasts might like a heads-up.

        I guess a Rick Bayless and a Pati marathon really would have been a better bet, but who knows what PBS was thinking. Easy enough to modify pizza.
