Fewer Americans see TV as necessity: I agree; I'm into my second month without it and doing fine
Floyd Norris of The New York Times writes that a Pew survey released today found the lowest percentage of Americans -- in 36 years of questioning -- consider TV to be a necessity.
Yes, just 52 percent of Americans see it as a must.
I agree. I'm finishing my second month without television and doing quite dandy.
For more of us, a computer, Internet and cell phone are the necessities of living a connected life. And I believe that means connecting to more people than through watching the boob tube.
Change is good. Twitter, anyone?
