Subject: RE: BS: No Telly?
I have never owned a TV. When I was in graduate school, there was one in the lounge of my dorm, and I would sometimes dawdle in front of it on the way to my room. But as soon as the first advertisement came on, it would drive me to study.

Later, I got the idea of buying a miniature TV, which I would keep in a closet & take out only when it promised to behave. I actually ordered one from Sears. That model had been discontinued, so they offered to sell me the next-bigger one at the same price. That one was too big to fit on the closet shelf, so I said no. That must have been about 1966. A narrow escape.
