I canceled our cable tv today. For years we were good with rabbit ears, but when we moved to Long Branch we decided to try out cable. We get loads and loads of channels but very little programming that really interests us. I suggested to the guy at the cable office that if he could offer us HBO + the movie channel only and charge us $10 each month, we would seriously consider it. He told me a sad tale. He said the government forces the cable companies to force many different channels on their customers. If it weren’t for that darned government always getting in the way, his company could be much more reasonable. Right. Left to their own devices the cable giants will always do the right thing.
And so, we have 30 days of cable left. I feel free.
