    No, as the letter which I originally wrote specified, I was asking
avout the *video* quality and that's what they replied about. I understand
that the prints are sometimes restored, that was ancillary info in their
response. My point is that the video made in the here and now, especially of
Kats, need not be allowed to deteriorate. There are ways around that. TCN
does what they can with what they are given, but Turner's evidentally too cheap
to use a lossless medium for the broadcasts. I guess that means the Kats on
TCN will just get worse and worse, but then you know after a point they're
going to have to do something, right? Sure hope so.
