It’s easy to perceive[…]
When I was a kid, we had no television. My parents did not approve of television, and in some ways, they were probably right. In the 1960s and 70s, they thought that TV was a bastion of evil. However, my grandparents, God bless them had television. When we went to visit once a month, we[…]
