Whenever there is a parade, the March Madness Marching Band is there. They were the last group in the parade. When they got to the end, they put on one hell of a show. The drummer was a wild man. They are all trained musicians. They look pretty funky, but they sound great.

I used filtered Black and white, tweaked sharpness and contrast. I also did white balance then faded it a bit. RetineX seemed to add depth to the image. Part of it is the heightened contrast.

Don't settle for reality, but don't make it too obvious. RetineX can be a blunt instrument. I'm never fully satisfied with its results, but I keep trying.

a cheap, easily found balun (transformer) to attach the antenna to your converter box or TV. So far this is the best of the three I've tried for my situation.

Here's a quick and dirty drawing of the folded Dipole I made. I based it on the plans given me by an engineer at a local TV station.

This antenna can be laid on the floor behind your tv. Mine is in the basement and it works well. I pick up channels 18 through 56. On occasion I can get a distant station (67).
I used a 7 ft bamboo pole, and attached the wire with duct tape.

The ten most recommended threads posted on the Democratic Underground Discussion Forums in the last 24 hours.
first draft letter to editor 03-14-06
Conservatism as practiced by Bush and his true believers is more about pulling back than going forward. We see them pulling back on science and replacing it with the convenient political theory of the day. We see them pulling back from religious freedom, only accepting those with similar interpretations of sacred text. We see them pulling back from the American Dream, reserving it only for the corporate aristocracy. We see them pulling back from education, replacing it with the familiarity of their fears and superstitions. We see them pulling back from Liberty, replacing it with the comfort of a narcissistic dictator who defines reality and what freedoms to grant to subjects.

One of the last great Republicans, Theodore Roosevelt said, "A great democracy must be progressive or it will soon cease to be great or a democracy."
