To which I explain:  I live in suburban New Haven where I can receive
w/o cable no stations except a fuzzy ABC local affiliate as I may not
put an antenna on my condo roof.

Ergo I cannot watch Fox any more than I can watch ESPN.

And further, as a consequence I see no TV unless I betake myself to a
friend's house.

Given that I watched my TV approximately 20 total times in the almost 2
years I did pay for cable, I've chosen to put that money instead into a
good DSL connection to the internet.

So unless someone tapes things for me I will never see Boston Public,
nor do I have a passionate desire to do so :) It's really only public TV
I miss and I have a friend who tapes for me.

That way I get to see the few Shakespearean and other classic plays,
early and modern.  And I go to his place when I want to see JunkYard
Wars <G>
