-- It's "Star Trek's" 43rd anniversary this week. So, don your Vulcan ears and prepare to go where no man has gone before. Check out this cool "then and now" photo gallery from the Chicago Tribune comparing this summer's "Star Trek" movie to the original TV show.
-- I never thought I'd thank Time Warner Cable. Until now.
Two nights ago, in between bouts of tennis watching, I ventured above channel 100 -- a territory I rarely visit due to what I thought were the constraints of my standard cable package. Lo and behold, I discovered that not only can I access these channels, but they also include favorites like BBC America, The N and Toon Disney. Am I hallucinating? Will I be able to add to "Monty Python's Flying Circus" and "Degrassi: The Next Generation" to my useless TV repertoire? Will Time Warner read this post and downgrade my cable?
