     Heh. The "lack of vision" aspect of H-B has been around for quite
awhile. The original season of "Jonny Quest" was very much a creator's
show for the first season; Doug Wildey ran everything, and it showed. At
the time, they had no idea of the value of the property, and it's taken,
what...31 years for them to figure it out? Turner inherited all the
"classic" characters, and I suppose he can continue to run them
frequently enough on his own outlets that he'll make enough cash to
support them - but it's not very "visionary" for a man that bills himself
the first 21st Century Broadcaster.
