And what's wrong with not owning a television,and watching only DVDs on the 
computer,or internet video?

I  haven't owned a TV since 2001.TVs are for old people,just like newspapers.

"The night has been long
ditto, ditto my song"

I am very grateful for being reminded of the ditto.

And that, in turn, has reminded me of the day in 1950 when I became a publisher, 
having acquired a "planograph" jelly duplicator, also known as a "hectograph."

As for the gentleman - the one who objects to music being discussed on ARSCLIST 
- who hasn't turned on the telly for five years; he's too busy watching videos 
on his computer.
