Re: gripe

Kitty, it's a generation gap thing.  When I was little we didn't have a 
television - it hadn't even been invented.  We had radio, but I was not
encouraged to listen to it a lot.  When I got to college, I lived with the
radio on - first time I had the freedom to do that.  I enjoyed listening to
football games on radio even then.  
AT some point when my children were growing up, I remember my 
youngest saying he didn't understand why people liked to watch soap
operas - he said they were too much like what was going on in his own
family to be fun.  Of course that was when the older boys were creating
dramas all over the place, but that's another story.

When my dad got out of the service he was trained to fix radios and tvs and 
such.  We had a used tv when I was little in the 50s.  We always had a tv 
and I've always had one, but I don't feel I've ever been a 'slave' to it. 
My dad used to watch 2 tvs at a time with a radio going.  He'd walk in and 
turn it on with no intention of staying in the room.  I hated that. 
However, I like to watch a show each night to wind down from the day.  It 
relaxes me.  I like stories and I like to be entertained a bit.  As to 
sports, I can understand people liking games even though I don't.  But I 
really hate the way it's glorified above all else.  Schools drop arts 
programs so they can spend more on athletics.  I just don't like it.
