Good news. Bad news. It’s time for a media moratorium. Just before Thanksgiving, we canceled the cable tv. My intention was to cut way back on television watching, since 900 channels was meaning limitless entertainment distractions 24/7 merely a click away! But without cable, there remain many ways to watch A LOT of shows, through the antennae, downloaded, and on DVD. Today was a day with lots of news. Good news, bad news, weather news. Actually, it’s hardly news – everything is packaged as entertainment, and I’m rather fed up. I’m going to try and step away from it all for a while and see if I can cleanse the ol’palate, read the stack of books next to my pillow and stop the flashing pictures from distracting my sleep.
