What I want to know is why cable TV can't provide users with a menu of channels rather than with a prepackaged bill of goods. I mean, do I really really need QVC? Or any of the other junk channels? If I didn't live is a place where you literally can't get TV without cable, I'd do without--and damn the kid's torpedoes at no Nickleodeon <br><br> Alas, poor Yorick. -- Hamlet
