Can someone add this to the 1945-1988 folder, please? (Without the extra spaces):

  • [[ https:// youtu. be/Q Ig ZH Zpiq 1 U A '70s percursor to those cable/satelite ads ]]: "pay TV"[[ note]]what cable was then called[[/note ]] vs "free TV"[[ note]]i.e., over the airwaves[[/note ]]. It was a Scare Campaign which urged people to sign a petition to ban cable, as people shouldn't pay for what they already had for free and [[Scare Em Straight it would be another place where monsters appeared ]]. A percursor to Cable Satellite Mudslinging that was run in movie theaters.

The first page quote ("There's so much comedy on television. Does that cause comedy in the streets?") is rather ironic when you consider that there really is comedy in the streets; Improv Everywhere comes to mind.
