That's Entertainment?


It seems I will never learn that it is folly to download (and read) those 99-cent books touted by Amazon... and that without fail each of them was written by a rank beginner who has yet to learn the fundamentals of composition, editing, and even the basics of thinking, for that matter. But I cannot bring myself to pay the $15 to $17 and more they are currently asking for works of popular authors, such as Stephen King, et al.


Would you watch a crude and boorish TV show that captures celebrities at indelicate instants or in embarrassing situations, such as during the unintentional but loudly explosive emission of a great quantity of gas?

Would I?

Hell yes!

Would you allow your children to watch such a show?

Hell yes! I always loved hearing my kids laugh.

  1. I agree. Today's digital river is far worse than even Ted Sturgeon might have imagined. Read your email, my friend.
