I can deal with An Idiot Abroad and Oddities but the rest of it... Ugh.

Pop Science, please.
I posted what I thought was a fairly wonderful explanation of why television and cable networks/stations get so far off track, but it got wiped during the server shortage.

I was so pleased with what I'd written when I wrote it, however, that I incorporated it into my website's monthly e-mail newsletter. And, since I'm an old television guy and therefore know a thing or two about recycling material, today I posted the newsletter for those who for some inexplicable reason haven't subscribed to it.

So if anyone cares - and, yes, I'll be incredibly hurt if they don't but will hide it so that you'll never know - you can find said "wonderful" explanation here: http://tvwriter.net/?p=11492
