I would think that that if Optimum...

...(a/k/a Cablevision) really considered this to be "Impor­tant Information about your TV service" in respect to "sun outages" they could have taken a little more care to get on the correct year's calendar instead of this:

I mean, really!

(nb: Cablevision had caught and corrected their error by the end of the day.)

Last week, another "Important Message" from Optimum found its way into my E-mail inbox with the subject line:

Turn On Your TV & Automatically Tune To News 12

Why? What would make me want to do that?

(Whatever "Hyper local-news" is, I've seen their prod­uct and they can keep it!)

And beginning this Thursday "automatically" tune our sets to News12?

As Dustin Hoffman's character says in an upcoming episode of "Luck:"

"There will be blood over this!"

The production values, the timeliness of the "news" deliv­ered as well as what News12 Long Island deems news­worthy, makes one nostalgic for Drew Scott and the WLNY Channel 55 Nightly News at 10:00 pm.

Don't want to put Br'er Scott on the spot, but I'll bet he gets a tinge of nostalgia as well.
