I agree.  The days of ever-escalating prices for marginal properties are 
over.  I don't think Telemedia even paid much over $5M for WHOB with a 
great signal for a Class A and potential to be a playa if only someone knew 
how to program it.  How would you ever justify paying that kind of $ for a 
non-comm that's not a well-established force in the market (ie-NPR 
affiliate or a strong fundraiser)?
