If You Don't Want Your Kids ...

Not much worthy to say about the Clinton thing, except this: mothers were complaining about the Clinton tape being on TV. Well, turn the damned thing off.

One high school senior interviewed about the tapes defiantly told the interviewer, "Just because it's on TV, that doesn't mean I have to watch it." While I agree with that, I was shocked by the thought that anyone would think differently. Of course you don't have to watch it.

I watch TV. I like TV. I watched the hearings (mostly listened, I suppose) as I worked. But there is no obligation for anyone to even HAVE a TV, let alone turn it on, let alone watch it, let alone watch something in particular.

So mothers, if you cannot be bothered to turn the TV off, or at least change the channel, then I could always use another TV. And I know plenty of people who want children, if you can't be bothered to take care of yours.
