I'm glad everyone is finally agreeing with my posting of the other day- use
the delete key!

I've always thought the "off" switch was the handiest control on my
television, as well, and far superior to censorship or our government's
paternalistic "V-chip" idea.

I was watching the TV news recently and a commentator noted that the V-chip
was necessary since the TV is used more and more for baby-sitting children.
My 15 year old son (and obviously a cynical chip-off-the-old-block) noted
that any child that is baby-sat by a television is going to grow up
"screwed-up" anyway.
