I have recently come to a moral crossroads. The question at hand is whether to keep television in the house or not.
I have long admired people that don't have a TV. I admired, though slightly less, those that do not have cable or satellite (or internet now) TV.
I came across this blog entry at Newsbusters:

This makes me want to get rid of cable, and our TVs. Not only would I avoid this filth ever coming into our home, but I would save about $80 to boot.
There is only one thing preventing me: sports. As a huge baseball and football fan I would miss being able to watch those sports, not to mention college basketball. My wife is also a huge college sports fan, so she would not like having to miss watching the Spartans every chance she gets.
So that is the crux of the decision. We have parental locks currently our cable boxes. Anything PG and worse requires a code. I will have some soul searching to do in order to decide what course of action to take. But I would love nothing more than to be able to get rid of the evil box and everything it has become.
