Far be it from us to espouse lifestyle information in a business-to-business publication, but based on the responses our sister publication CableFAX 100 received to the question "What are your holiday plans?" some in our industry haven’t heard that experts recommend an extended break to recharge the batteries. We quote from Air Force Instruction 36-3003: "Lengthy respites from the work environment tend to have a beneficial effect on the individual’s psychological and physical status." While we trust some of the responses below were made in jest, the CableWORLD staff wishes all our readers and their families a relaxing and enjoyable holiday break. Your holiday plans? Manish Jha, SVP/GM, Mobile ESPN "Launching Mobile ESPN." Billy Farina, VP, ad sales, Cox Media "Is Mr. Esser letting me take a vacation this year?" Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) "What’s a holiday?" Henry Schleiff, chairman/CEO, Court TV Networks "Visiting my wife’s relatives, many of whom are in the Witness Protection Program." Sue Hamilton, EVP, programming, Charter "Not standing next to my fax machine at midnight on Dec. 31 (but we all know about the best-laid plans…)." Bill Schleyer, CEO, Adelphia "Family, family, family." Vanessa Wittman, CFO, Adelphia "On the slopes in Park City."
