Mark Cuban’s HDNet has a veritable smorgasbord of high-def broadcasting. Sometimes smorgasbords can get messy. New York magazine wondered if newsman Dan Rather was bothered by the fact that his meat and potatoes newscast was on the same plate as, um, candied yams. That is to say, did he have a problem being on the same channel as HDNet’s Perfect 10 Boxing? Nope, he said. No problem at all. I asked HDNetizen Robert Wilonsky if he had a beef. His reply:

Perfect 10 boxers? Why do you think they invented hi-def in the first place?

Excellent point. And surprisingly brief. (I keeed, I keeed.)
