Mike Morris (6/11, Letters) complained about the local TV stations’ excessive coverage of the June 3 fuel-tank fire.
He could have left the TV off the entire night and read a good book, visited with his significant other, played with his children or grandchildren, worked on a hobby, driven to a nearby mall and become a mall-walker, written a letter to an out-of-town relative or started or completed a home-improvement project.
Experts say that withdrawal symptoms among families forced by circumstance to cease TV watching indicate there may be an addiction problem.
Perhaps the term “boob tube” isn’t so funny after all.
