Kill That TV

I thought I was the only one who wanted to kill a TV. Several years ago I thought about calling the Woodstock PD and asking if there was any law against pumping six rounds into my own TV. Actually, I knew there was, and I didn't want my residence surrounded by every cop in town and the County.

Check out two websites: www.turnoffyourtv.com where you can read, "American children and adolescents spend 22 to 28 hours per week viewing television, more than any other activity except sleeping. By the age of 70 they will have spent 7 to 10 years of their lives watching TV."-- The Kaiser Family Foundation

And check out www.tvturnoff.org for a gameplan to sharply reduce the TV time in your household. Is there life after TV? There is only one way to find out. Turn it off. Try it. Turn it off for a week. For two weeks. And that includes videogames and movie rentals, unless they are good quality, healthy, family-time movies.

Get a book and actually read it.

What a novel idea!

What about the request for the local police to find the responder who called you a sex offender. How goes that empty useless nonsense?

you don't do enough reading if you are always driving around looking for code violations.
