RE: Df photos of greenhouse

Those are good points, Jim.  A lot of children have been brought up by the
"one eyed monster" rather than thoughtful parents and communities.  It
really is sad when we give up that responsibility because it is so much
easier than parenting.  TV can be a tool to be used for good or evil, but
for goodness sakes, it is just a tool and not a true social body.  It is too
easily manipulated by those with the money and power to control it.  

Of course, the same holds true of newspapers and other media as well.  What
is that saying?   "Don't believe anything your read and only half of what
you see."  That's good for adults to remember, but children don't have the
discernment skills to know what fact is and what fiction is.  Fiction is
often skillfully wrapped to look like fact, dependent upon the promoters
view point to the point where it is difficult for adults to tell the
difference.  But that is a battle humans have faced since communications
first began, isn't it?

Hope all is good for you and your family (furred and leafed members, too!)

Does seem that we've had more than a normal amount of disappoints the 
last couple of years.

George Gerbner, the dean emeritus of Penn's Annenberg School of 
Communications died Christmas eve. He made a career of associating 
human behavior with TV violence. Gerbner believed people no longer 
learned their cultural identity from family, schools, churches, and 
communities but from "a handful of conglomerates who have something to 
sell." In 1981, he told Congress people who watch large amounts of 
television are more likely to believe that the world is a frightening 
place. "Fearful people are more dependent," he said, "more easily 
manipulated and controlled, more susceptible to deceptively simple, 
strong, tough measures, and hard-line postures... They may accept and 
even welcome repression if it promises to relieve their insecurities."

Thought you might be interested.
