"Americans spend an average of 29 hours a week watching television - which means in a typical life span we devote 13 uninterrupted years to our TV sets! The biggest problem with mass media isn't low quality - it's high quantity. Cutting down just an hour an day would provide extra years of life - for music and family, exercise and reading, conversation and coffee."

I know many (most?) families probably watch a good deal more television than we do, but that much? Really? How in the world do people find time to watch that much?
My friend Laura @ Glimpses of Our World shared some thoughtful insights on television viewing recently. I agree with her assessment: I am challenged to watch even less!
After all, I would much rather have more time for "music and family, exercise and reading, conversation and coffee!"
