Giving Up Television

A lot of people know that Steve has given up watching television and I’ve received a lot of requests asking if I plan to give it up as well.  The short answer is, no, I’m not planning to give it up, and here’s why. I wrote a previous blog entry about Why I Never Watch the News, and I still don’t watch it.  It’s negative, social conditioning, designed to instill fear.  I only watch shows that I actually want to see, and try never to turn on the tv just to see what’s on.  Television is a medium.  It’s a

Why I Never Watch the News

When I was a child I remember my parents watching this show on television that seemed really boring.  The people on the show would just sit there and talk, back and forth.  It wasn’t even animated!  When I tried to get my parents attention while they watched this show, they would shush me.  I was very concerned that when I grew up I would somehow be turned into this zombie who sat in front of the tv watching grown ups just talk.  What a horrible fate!  I found out later this abominable program was called “the News.”  I never watched it.

Why I Deplore the Death Penalty

Today I saw a bumper sticker that read, “Why do we kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?”  Amen to that!  That pretty much sums up how I feel about the death penalty.

George Bush and the Fate of our World

I’ve gotten several requests from readers to comment and/or discuss my feelings about George Bush, the current President of the United States.  I have a lot to say about Mr. Bush so I think now’s as good a time as any. First of all, I know very little about politics.  I’ve never really been interested.  If you asked me whether I was Republican, Democrat, Conservative, Liberal, or on the left or the right I wouldn’t know.  I’ve never considered it and I don’t care to label myself anyway. But when George Bush won his first presidential election, I felt what Obi

Why Do We?

I’m a parent.  I’ve got 2 small children ages 2 and nearly 6.  I do what all parents do; I try to teach my kids right from wrong, good from bad, proper from improper.  How do I know what to teach them?  It’s instinct.  It’s what we all seem to know deep down inside as the difference between right and wrong.  I don’t think you need to read a book to know these things, you just know them.  And you pass the information along to your kids as they grow. But somewhere along the way, we as a society have
