Stealin' Cable

from the c'mon,-everybody's-doing-it dept

A good article about people who steal cable. Not surprisingly, it’s fairly common, and while everyone knows that it’s “illegal” most people don’t think it’s a very big deal. The author was surprised that so many people were willing to come forward and admit that they stole cable. He does point out, interestingly, that most of the people make a good living, spend a ton more on CDs and other entertainment… but there’s a sense of pride about ripping off the big cable company that is almost universally hated.
