No they don't and it's a shame. I did find the crude opening of Brockmire on IFC the other day pretty funny, I had visions of Bob Uecker going bat-crazy. :)

I did that for a summer circa 1962. I remember Saturday was chocolate milk day. Worked for a wonderful gentleman who recently passed away. RIP

And I remember when we had party lines and telephone operators who gossiped (small town). No, they didn't sell info to marketers, but I'm not sure which is worse. :)

I've been arguing for monopoly/utility status for more years than I can remember, but I'm not paranoid, so I don't care about the subject policy, either how it stands now or how they wanted to change...

I have no idea how to opt-out with Cox (or Google/Facebook for that matter), I've never looked, but how hard is it to make a phone call? :) Even if I made the call, I'm not sure how I'd verify the...

On the other hand, ISPs maintain the infrastructure, etc., so don't Google, et al, make a killing off their efforts? In some ways, it's akin to why cableco's now pay local stations retrans fees when...

While I've long advocated ISPs being "dumb pipes", where was all the outrage before the rule change was initially submitted? I really don't care one way or the other, I just don't see why it's...

Without fail, we all agree to EULAs without reading them and IMHO, this is no different. Companies have been making money off our data for quite some time, probably from the earliest days of the...

IMHO, it's simply a feel-good change that has little impact because only a few pitchers take that long anyway and the time limit was designed to constrain them. If they really wanted to speed up the...

The bright side is that now we all know about it. I had seen it mentioned on a show years ago, but thought it was just something they dreamed up.

Yes, but a simple PM would work just as well and save 2 posts for every typo. Of course, no one cares anymore how many bits are wasted. :)

I don't think that's true. I know I've heard "Runaround Sue" from 1961, "Twist and Shout", "The Wanderer" and "Sheila" from 1962, "Surf City", "Surfin' USA" and "It's My Party" from 1963 as well as...

That's why I pay for SiriusXM and listen to 40's On 4, 50's On 5, 60's On 6 and 70's On 7. ;) There's no doubt some of today's singers are talented, but there isn't much to distinguish them from each...
