Prioritizing Priorities

Justin Katz

It's so much easier to be active in the summer.

How am I supposed to keep up with Prison Break and Heroes if I intend to attend Tiverton Town Council meetings? Maybe it would be different if I could afford a TiVo machine, but such tools are out of my range of affordability.

But there's a thought... inasmuch as participation is a necessity for having a say in our government and inasmuch as certain television shows are clearly addictive to people with certain "natural" — perhaps genetic — brain operations, an argument could be made that the federal government ought to ensure a TiVo in every home.

Think I'll call my congressman! (He's into that sort of thing.)
