Nano on the tube?

Michael Shermer's illuminating idea for a 24/7 "all science all the time" network deserves support. He, along with the widow of Carl Sagan -- who endured near excommunication from the hallowed sanctuaries of science for the sin of sparking curiosity among the unwashed masses -- and others are trying to set up a Cable Science Network. What they're thinking of is a combination CNN and C-SPAN for science. So, along with documentaries and news reports, you'll see congressional hearings on, for example, the nanotechnology bill awaiting approval. I'd subscribe.
