New topic: Antiques TV

This is so embarrassing. Back in January, I (Andrew) had an excuse for my absence--the Ohio exhibition (many thanks for all of your kind words, by the way...check out next Friday's New York Times for an article that will discuss regional museum shows, including Equal in Goodness). The past 2 months, I have no excuse. Just still recovering, I suppose.

But, it's a new season (spring!) and I'm feeling energized, so let's start a real discussion. Our next column will talk about the current crop (bumper crop, that is) of antiques-related television shows. Roadshow, Pickers, Pawn Stars, etc. etc. etc. What are your opinions? Do they accurately portray antiques and the antiques business? Can they be improved? If so, how? Okay...discuss!
