This was an interesting view making some valid points. Basically it is an
emotional response to the issue. I can see merit in the TV-Turn Off Week;
but, I don't know that this is a good argument for it. I think if people
are interested in the effects of electronic media on society in comparison
to print and speech should read Neil Postman's book AMUSING OURSELVES TO
DEATH. He makes some very interesting arguments.
