Rare gratitude for TV

I'm watching the Africa Channel. Currently on is a program about female leaders from various African countries meeting together, and joining forces with American doctors and philanthropists, to improve quality of life for (and save the lives of) African people. There have been previews of a show about African influence in black American music and even clips of an African soap opera.

In a time of year that's bloated with smiley, saccharine, Anglo-Saxon commercialism, discovering this channel has been not just a breath, but lungful after lungful of fresh air.
