This final note is actually a chart, tracking the consolidation of the cable industry.

Just follow this one route from Comcast to Adelphia, ATT Broadband, Philadelphia Cablevision, Prime Communications, Maclean Hunter, EW Scripps, Jones Intercable, Lensfest Communications, Susquehanna Communications, and Patriot Media.

And now, possibly, Time Warner, of course. (This is all thanks to the fabulous team at the Wall Street Journal):
