As they do out here in my western NY suburb.

At the risk of going OT, I suspect Garrett's blocking of the PEG 
channels simply reflects his connection, or lack thereof, to the town 
where he lives. Without kids in school or any other deep ties to that 
particular community, living in a condo and thus not dealing directly 
with many municipal services, and spending most of his days at work 20 
miles away, I can't blame him for having little interest in the nuances 
of local politics. I wouldn't either, in that situation.

I care fairly deeply about what happens in my town (I own a home, have a 
daughter who starts public school this fall and another kid on the way, 
and grew up here, too), but even I don't watch most of the town meetings 
on Channel 12, depending instead on our local weekly to summarize any 
items of interest.

It's still nice to know it's there if I need it.
