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.
