The family Dumont (TV) broke that one last time. My (engineer) Dad finally decided he was done repairing it. He consulted with Mom and they decided, their young family would be raised without TV. It was 1962. What I want to communicate to you was how cruel my classmates and some of the neighbor kids were, to my siblings and me. Every kid who had self image problems saw an opportunity to attack and to tease. So, please, get a grip on yourself. TV is a lot like alcohol. It is super easy to find yourself consuming too much. So, if someone aspires to cut the cable or decides not to buy a TV set for this residence or that one, give them credit for trying to clean up. I don't actually find recovering alcoholics to act all that superior, but I think they'd have that right if they did. Strong people get my attention and my praise and people who stay knocked down, well, they don't get either.
