So why not get rid of your TV? Go ahead. Do it.
When is the last time you’ve ever seen anything on TV that built you up intellectually, spiritually or socially?
There is good stuff, but you can get that good stuff on DVDs from the library or streaming on Netflix or Amazon.
Sport? Why not go out an play more sports rather than watch them, and if you must watch a big sports event–find another way to do it.
You can live without it.
Life without television is beautiful. So much more time. Get rid of your TV; it will be the best decision you ever make (after deciding to stop allowing shoes inside your home- but if you are one of my Ukrainian, Russian, Korean or Polish readers you probably already do that).
