I could never understand why people would pay to watch stuff that unsettles them so much. I haven't had cable for 15 years. I have an antenna on the wall and pay for two streaming services. It costs me $20 a month. I can well afford to have cable, but why on earth would I want to pay to be irritated on a daily basis? My emotional well-being is more important to me than listening to talking heads every day.

I guess it all comes down to the choices we make.
