PLEASE NOTE:  AFTER THIS EPISODE #702, MEDIA EDGE WILL BE TAKING A BREAK.

After more than 700 consecutive weeks (since April 3, 2005) of providing two hours of progressive programming every week to cable access channels throughout the United States, "Media Edge" will suspend its operations for awhile.  During this hiatus, we will be re-tooling to upgrade to high definition video, in addition to getting some much-needed rest (and dealing with health-related issues).

Thank you very much for your continuing interest in the programs we have shown on "Media Edge."
