Turnoff

Weeks ago I offered a short defense of television and a harsh attack on the annoying scourge that is anti-television snobbery. Now science has born me out. The Old Gray Nutsack reports that watching television actually makes you smarter.

Also, I don’t know if you are aware of this, but we are now in the middle of TV-Turnoff Week. TV-Turnoff Week is exactly the sort of mushy-minded do-goodery that makes one wish H.L. Mencken were still alive just so he could tear it apart. Instead we have the San Francisco Chronicle’s Tim Goodman.
