This is Your Brain

While I was taking my break, and advertisement came in our local paper for Embarq, our local phone company, many of you know it better by the name Sprint.  The advertisement was for the dish network. Here is the catch line…

"A TV’s potential is a terrible thing to waste.  Get more out of your TV with over 100 channels at a great price"

Anybody remember the "old" advertising campaign for reading " a mind is a terrible thing to waste?" I guess this is supposed to be a play on that campaign.   Ah yes, how terrible that you can spend a small fortune on a huge HD TV and dish, or cable and still have NOTHING (or very little) of value to watch on that big black box?

Personally, I find this a sad reflection on society.  These days, government schools tout their political agendas and mainly forget about the 3 R’s then get upset with those of us who actually choose to teach our children those 3 R’s and the truth about their agendas…
