Fred on TV

The inimitable Fred Reed writes: The lobotomy box is all ads, with a sprinkle of stupid shows for people with the IQ of an avocado. Yes, I’ve heard the sheepish shuck-and-jive toe-dance about “But Fred, there are SOME good things – the History Channel and Discovery.” Yeah: Sharks, Nazis, and pyramids. The absolute minimum necessary so that people who can’t be alone with themselves will gawp at singing deodorant applicators.

I’m with Fred on this. I’d much rather read a book, play a game, surf or even write than watch TV – NFL excluded.
