  •  Ah, Cosmos (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Cosmos ran on PBS. It also came out in a beautiful, hardback book, a big one, almost like a coffee table book.  It had stunning full page images that the televisions and computers of that day simply couldn't display clearly.

    When the local PBS station offered the book as a premium for a sixty or hundred twenty dollar membership, we jumped at it. It is, these many years later, one of the most used, worn and falling apart books in our considerable home library.

    "The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness." John Kenneth Galbraith
