33294, not everyone has cable

i sure as hell don't. and i don't plan on getting it.

the closest thing to it i *do* have is a station like PBS. and i can almost assure you that if public broadcasting goes, the cost of cable will go thru the roof. think about it: it'd be the only way you can get "other" news sources, outside the internet.

plus, most of the news stations on cable are toeing the line for the most part (cnn, fox, etc.). if you have a satellite dish and can get BBC news or something like that, more power. but that's also more money.

i dunno about your town, but the college/public radio is about the best thing going if you have half a brain.

public broadcasting's important.
