Retweeted by Rick DeVosSad to hear of the passing of Vern Ehlers. A good, dedicated man who represented West Michigan well for many years. https://t.co/2IZwkbLik2And to be clear I think all cable news channels are worth replacing in public spaces. Fox, CNN, MSNBC, etc. just turn off the squawking. @dylanized Replace them all.The Apple TV screen savers are a gorgeous example of what's possible. Could watch them for long periods of time.It's a small mystery why no forward-thinking airline (that I know of) has ditched CNN in their lounges in favor of beautiful film of flight
