Most of the things I disliked as a kid, I still dislike now. Either I was a very mature kid then, or I'm a very immature adult now.

What bored me most as a kid was a show on PBS called OnQ, it consisted of two people sitting at a table talking about politics for half an hour, arrrrggghh! I wanted to see Sesame Street or cartoons and that was on instead, booooo.

I still don't like politics much, but I have developed an appreciation for financial news, since I can predict the repercussions of bad news now (and I've been in a finance job for 15 years now). I also like NFL football much more than I did as a kid.

I miss Louis Rukeyser and his version of Wall $treet Week. I didn't catch on until rather late just how funny he could be, and his attitude was cheerful rather than panicky as most financial coverage seem{s,ed} to be when not merely dull.
