I Like Progess, I Just Don't Like Change

citytvSomeone once told me they disliked people, but loved crowds. I always thought that was quite the paradox, but I have a better one. I like progress, but I don't really like change.

The Star reports that if Rogers Media Inc. gets approval to buy five Citytv television stations from CTVglobemedia Inc., they'll move the flagship Citytv station out of the storied CHUM-City building at Queen and John streets. On first glance, this is precisely the kind of change I dislike. Citytv has been at Queen and John for as long as I can remember and it's a part of our city's fabric, like the Sam the Record Man sign on Yonge. There are some things I'd like to remain constant, if for no other reason than because that's the way it's always been. That's not a good reason.

Upon further review, MuchMusic and the other speciality stations will still rock from the CHUM-City building, so who really cares if Citytv airs from elsewhere? I can live with that.

I like progress, I just don't particularly like change. It's a paradox that will plague me until the end of time.

It seems every time I notice something that's out of place in our fast-paced society because it's old and hasn't changed in years, it's doomed to be removed or replaced within a short time. Your entry title is kind of a motto for me.
