That storm we had last week did a lot of local damage, including taking out the cable for the TV for most of the town. You may know we’ve ranted against TV in our lives for a long time now. It’s addictive junk that turns your brain to mush. Though we did crowd around our friends’ set when the Red Sox were playing, and I have been known to watch marathon sessions of Iron Chef (did anyone see the rabbit episode a few weeks ago?!)
TV here had the mixed blessing of (mostly) being in Spanish, so as the kids were watching cartoons you could almost justify it being subliminally educational, in a linguistic sense. But, easy come, easy go. In TV’s absence, the kids spend more time hanging upside down. Which is subliminally educational, in a gravitational sense.
