Todd Gross let Go??

I think HDTV is outstanding!  At least on my CRT Panasonic HDTV set.  When I
watch the HDTV Stations such as INDH, HDNet, ESPN-HD and the networks when
they are broadcasting that signal, it truly is a great picture and has an
awesome great depth of field.

I, too, am not impressed with what I've seen of HDTV in many places.  I keep
noticing (what look like) "JPEG artifacts" in some scenes, little
criss-crossed lines in darker scenes, or in scenes where there is not a lot
of contrast.  It's distracting to me.  Is this a product of inferior
broadcast, or is it that the TV is a lower-quality HDTV?

By the way, I thought that Todd Gross was one of the premier meteorologists
we've ever had around the Boston area.  He appeared to be a true
weather-geek, never hiding his enthusiasm for all-things-atmospheric.  I
hope he turns up at another local station.  Of course, Todd's name is
immortalized as they used his name as that of the meteorologist in "The
Perfect Storm."
