I simply don't like 4:3 or black bars. Its a personal opinion and I'd like a choice.
Everyone's entitled to their own taste, of course. But I just don't understand the objection to black bars on the sides of the HDTV screen. All those bars do is make the screen the same shape as the old CRT television screens the show was intended for.

How about this idea: Instead of plain black bars, why not display pictures of TV speaker grilles and old-style control knobs on either side of the 4:3 image?
