Re: Post-Cable Era Here?

30 years ago, there was plenty of sports programming available free over the air, so why pay for it?

15 years ago, the Detroit hockey team's games were broadcast over the air. Now they are exclusively carried on cable and satellite

Re: Post-Cable Era Here?

Steve,

Re: Post-Cable Era Here?

Re: Disney's Marshall Plan

Perhaps the park should be closed and the real estate sold. Does anyone know how much revenue the park brings in for Disney?

Thanks for the info. I have a trip planned to Europe in about a year for a TA cruise. We were trying to decide whether Disneyland Paris should be on our itinerary. This certainly helps especially when there are so many unique things [more]

Re: OT: Retirement Account Choices


Indeed, I've only seen two posters claim they kept the faith in MI through the 2007-2009 debacle. Suggests the rest of us didn't?
