Please, oh PLEASE...

An excerpt:

So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, 
Go throw your TV set away, 
And in its place you can install, 
A lovely bookshelf on the wall. 

~ from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
written by Roald Dahl

Okay, so maybe we don't actually need to throw the tv away... just turn it off once in awhile. :)  Luckily,  we haven't had much of a problem with that at our house.  Most days my kids and I would rather sit down with a good book than turn on the tube.
