Gawd, why are we even watching TV ?

- yes I understand that maybe I'd watch more television (like 4 times a year maybe ?) if there were art related topics, but we now have the internet eg: http://www.apug.org/forums/video.php to keep our eyes square (or widescreen now I guess, doesn't have the same zing to it tho huh)

As for national broadcasting - its pretty indicative of society, lowest common denominator rules - its eaten its own tail for decades now no matter how much people have lobbied for more balanced programming ...

It has to make immediate or at least short term economic sense, no appeal to a greater or longer term significance to society will make a dent, even if there were someone 'on board' with any sway in the industry - noise is just... well, noise - it makes no impact whatsoever on the graph of programming topics vs. advertising profits.

We need to be smarter - and yes, I understand I bring nothing to the table here ...

But letter writing ???
