And A & E was Arts and Entertainment and had wonderful shows. Now it has Dog, the Bounty Hunter, Hoarding, Intervention and other disgusting time wasters.
I should add that an in-law of mine worked as a social worker in a New Mexican prison. The prison authorities blocked the A & E channel from their TV feed. They found it riled up the prisoners too much and planted too many ideas in their heads.
Gove are the days on A & E that you can watch Charles Dickens, Emily Bronte, or a rendition of Washington’s Crossing of the Delaware. It’s just crap now.
