Now that about as unbiased as hell for someone setting up a poll. Reminds me of the NY Times polls.

First of all, you are not a citizen of The Villages. If anything, you are a citizen of X county, Y community development district.

Secondly, none of those entities owns VNN. The station is owned and operated by a private corporation both as a service to viewers and as a marketing tool for its enterprise. If you don't like the way it's run, start your own station.

Thirdly, there is nothing on VNN that makes it mandatory viewing for the public. It's nice to have if you want to see cute little vignettes about your neighbors or homes for sale. Other than that, if you don't like it, don't watch it.

"Too Bad The Villages Does not care about all of its citizens." God, I hate that attitude. Once this place becomes governed by the citizens, it's squeaky wheels like that and the POA who are going to run this place and when that happens, we will quickly go to hell in a handbasket.

There is a FCC file on the whole case pending on the closed captioning for the VCC. The case seems to have the number CGB-CC-0789 and you can get to it by following the instructions in the FCC website. http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_publi...A-08-793A1.pdf Just remember to put 06-181 in the box 1 marked "proceeding" and then 0789 in box ten "file number". There are about 30 items there as of today. Comments from interested people and groups as well as the attorneys' filings.

Particularly about Happy62 who lives outside the villages and said he enjoys the villages amenities. Grrrrr.

Second on Muncle.

Can you say "marketing tool"? It's like a perpetual brochure. Enough complaints and it won;t be a point for discussion any longer...like the buffalo.

However, closed captioning would be a nice perk.

Think about your question and the age of the residents here in TV. Were you joking?
