I think cable is a rip off. I remember way back when it first came to the town we were living back in the early 1980's. My husband wanted it to watch all the football games. It was $10 for basic cable. I remember saying to him, "You're going to pay $10 just to watch TV ?" You're crazy. Now it's really high with internet. We have been thinking of getting rid of our land line phone. That's over $30 and we hardly ever use it and don't use it for long distance.
