Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I have to go to Leonard's place to watch Last Comic Standing on NBC, as I don't get Channel 11, and Enterprise's new season on UPN hasn't started yet. So the worthwhile channels that I can see on the TV at my new place are PBS and whatever Channel 32 is. Sometimes Channel 32 shows English-language German programming from DW-TV. The DW Journal has anchors with US accents, which makes me wonder whether I'm watching the US version of the show and DW-TV produces the show in five languages every day, ACK-style.

Sometimes channel 32 is the ARTS channel, with operas and dance and so on. But it's on TV, so I don't feel pretentious about having it on in the background. How hoity-toity can it be if they don't want my money?
