    HQ in MD  had hostages taken in 2010.

    It has an onsite daycare center.

    It's possible that Newtown just made the execs realize how much they dodged a bullet (almost literally) especially with their own chikdren, and say "eff this. Ratings aren't worth our families lives."

    It's an excellent start.

    Every one of us who has cable should send an email to both Discovery Communications AND our cable providers saying "thank you," and asking our cable providers when channels like Nat Geo will follow suit.

    It's hard to insist movie channels reduce their gun violence when we have "reality" shows that glorify civilian guns that serve little purpose other than shooting up stuff that doesn't need to be shot.

    It's a good direction to take. And Comcast, Cox, AT&T, etc don't want to carry channels people won't watch and that their subscribers are not only openly boycotting but actively getting others to boycott as well.

    Cable providers. But if you have Comcast, don't bother calling unless you have several hours to wait in hold. And the person who answers won't care anyhow. Emails to corporate. Best yet, snail mail to corporate offices.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
