TV costs time and money, so I cancelled my cable. Now I get more reading done. My favorite type of TV was a C-Span presentation of an AEI or Brookings or Cato or Heritage panel of six or so 55-year-old white guys discussing tax policy or education policy or trade policy or America's options in the Mid East . The internet will supply that. Even the best news shows have to move along at a pace guaranteed not to bore the most distractible stoner so even the most considerate anchors interrupt their guests in a style that would earn them a permanent dis-invite from my house. Bill O'Reilly appears to have no clue how oafish he acts. Anyway, I chanced upon this, following links from Kathy Shaidle's site. .
