Good point about Montag, though his wife would have been the one to approve.

We have quite a few around here also. Funny, because my son is the only one who sits and watches it for any length of time, and he's usually doing his homework in front of it. He uses the DVR and skips all of the commercials.

I bought one at a garage sale that is in his bedroom and is dedicated to the Sony Playstation and other game players. I'd rather he wear a pattern on that screen than the others we view for tv and movies (though it is a good fairly new 19" Magnavox with the "smart screen." We got it cheap because they couldn't find the remote control, but I'd had a burglary months earlier and the remote from a stolen tv worked on it.) We each have a little 5" tv/radio combination one for emergency situations (battery operated). We have 4 others in several rooms in the house. But we have lots of radios and CD and DVD and VCR players. An accumulation (and inheritance) over time.

We do have more books than all of these devices. :)
