TV or not TV

In case you haven't heard, this is "Turn-Off TV Week".

We are all supposed to turn off our TV sets and computers and enjoy the real world!

Yuck.

Anyway according to the chronic do-gooders behind this program, TV is bad because:

*"On average, children in the US will spend more time in front of the television (1,023 hours) than in school this year (900 hours)". -- They say that like it's a bad thing.

* "Forty percent of Americans frequently or always watch television during dinner." -- What we really need are TVs in the washroom.

* As US Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher said at the Kick Off of TV-Turnoff Week 2001, "We are raising the most overweight generation of youngsters in American history...This week is about saving lives." --- Hmm, that's right kids stop watching TV and go out and play in the traffic.

But seriously this anti-TV campaign is a swell idea.

And I would defintitely take part, but I just have to find out if Lilly will forgive Daniel for his porn addiction on the Young and the Restless!
