David and Teresa Leon of Schenectady, New York and their four-year-old twins have seven sets, plus an eighth they haven't set up yet. They include TVs in both the parents' and kids' bedrooms, the family and living rooms and one in the kitchen that is usually turned to a news station.
I am dumb struck. My children will not have a TV in their bedroom. Here's a great quote:
"No one ever sits down for more than a few seconds in this house," said Teresa, a stenographer. "This way you can watch TV while you're moving from room to room, folding laundry or taking care of the kids."
You might as well just install big panel TVs put in the wall a la Fahrenheit 451 and have "the cousins" constantly talking to you. It's not that I think all TV should be eliminated, but if you watch the average 4 hours and 30 minutes, like most Americans, do you really remember what you watched? Do you have anything to show for that time spent? I mean other than a desire for all the products advertised?
All right, I am done now.
