  13. I AGREE

    There is just no further doubt it . Cnn needs a definite over-haul. Does Ted Turner(who owns CNN) also own cable stations TBS and TNT? Those 2 stations broadcast almost all the sports playoffs. SO, when I had to blow off my cable, I could not watch sports. Do Ted Turner and his ex-wife Jane Fonda own TBS & TNT? Does anyone know?

    Refinancing replaces your current mortgage with a new loan that has a more favorable interest rate and terms that you can afford to manage. The new loan is secured on the same property as your current loan. I refinanced and saving $451 every month! search online for "123 Mortgage Refinance" they got me a 3.11% rate
