Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Screw You Cablevision

Right now, I can't get Fox because Cablevision and Tribune are having a pissing match about rates. That means no NFL and no World Series.

This is what happens when customers are caught between powerful corporations who forgot long ago the maxim of "the customer is always right".

This is why the NHL season is in jeopardy, why we had replacement refs.

But just remember that these are just the visible examples.  Everyday, people are getting squeezed by the powerful.

Be nice if someone stood up for them.
