Resistance is futile

... we finally crumbled and bought a TV. We didn't bring our old one with us from Seattle because it was too bulky, a little iffy already and probably wouldn't have survived the cross-country move in a truck with no suspension. We initially figured we didn't really want/need to replace it because we don't watch very much TV, but after a couple of months of having to listen to presidential debates on the radio, getting all our news off the Internet and having to watch movies on my laptop screen, we decided that it was time to just bite the bullet and spring for one. So now I'm sitting here watching the Nature channel [showing the usual "Nature red in tooth and claw" docudrama about wild animals trying to survive a harsh environment and each other] and, I must say, quite enjoying it. So much for holding out against the evil forces promoting mindless entertainment ...
