This one vote mattered 50 years ago today

Today in 1972 a guy by the name of Charlie Dolan voted.  He elected to try something that had not been done before.  First called the Green Channel, then the Sterling Channel, then they decided on the name: Home Box Office.

The first “premium” channel you subscribed to for content; everything from Tony who “knew a guy” in Jersey to a house with a Dragon.  Some call it Euphoria. 70 million others voted to enjoy this entertainment.

So you should vote too.  
But remember the consensus after the election is usually that 100% of Americans think 50% of them have lost their minds.
