I have been under the opinion that cable providers were required to carry local programming when available, but apparently that isn’t necessarily so for satellite providers. Dish Network no longer provides Reno’s KTVN, Channel two, and that is simply not right. Yes, it is free over the air, but that isn’t what I pay for.
KTVN is the one source in the morning that employs a professional weather person, not a weather reader, and is the first source during a storm to update their information. Seems to me that I’m being denied because Dish can deny me.
On another note.
The Reno Gazette-Journal’s coverage of Nevada Day activities was the worst of any newspaper in the state. A political commentary was the extent of their coverage, so once again, I’ve been short changed because I bought the Sunday paper to see some of the grand sights that took place during the activities. The days of Warren Lerude and Frank Johnson are truly dead.
And yet another quick note.
Good news on the writing front. My short story, “Three Fingered Jack”, has been published in the e-zine Rope and Wire. Go to http://ropeandwire.com/MainPages/Stories.html scroll down to traditional short stories and click on that. Good way to start the month.
Have a great day, read good books, and stay regular …
