But aren't they one of the largest cable companies in  the United States?
I knew that they were a cable company years ago when I was 18 years old.
I'm not a cable guy, I'm a radio geek! I had thought they were one of the
best known cable operators out there.

Maybe I am wrong.....won't be the first time....

There was a big discussion about porography and whether it was right or
wrong on this BBS called Harbourr Lights in Kennebunkport that I was on
when I was 10-12 years old or so. I decided to put my 2 cents in. So I
wrote this big long thing about phonography and what was morally right and
wrong about it. Like Emily Litela and the Deaf Penalty.....
