Default the television

With all of the newscasters acting like the war in Iraq is the "best of all possible worlds" my Dad calls the television a "one eyed electric Pangloss."

Bwahahahaha. Reminds me of this little rhyme:

Quote:
If, as they say, God spanked this town
For being much too frisky,
Why did He burn His churches down
And save Hotaling's Whiskey?
[Poem on 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire, in which
the city's largest whiskey distillery was left unscathed]
