The next Leader will be published the week of May 20, 2013. More Than 30,000 Readers By Dorothy Rosby I haven't told my family this yet, but l've made a unilateral deci- sion. This year, we will observe National TV Turnoff Week, April 28 to May 4. Normally, I don't approve of unilateral de- cisions in families, but l'm support- ing this one, because I'm the one who made it. And I recommend you do the same. When .... , your family asks why, you can tell them what I'm going to tell mine: When you watch too much television, you see things that no one should ever see. And I'm not just talking about violence or vul- garity. I'm talking about dumb! I recently saw a man on televi- sion attempt to eat 50 chicken wings. He did a lot of chewing, licking his fingers, and talking with his mouth full, all behavior I can watch at my own dinner table, and without the commercials. Hedidn't get all 50 down, though to his credit, he did eat a lot of chicken wings. I know because I traded part of a precious Saturday afternoon to watch him do it. I could have been eating my own chicken wings. I saw a man try and fail to beat the Guinness World Record for placing watermelons on another man's bare stomach, then chop- ping them in half with a large sword. You aight be better informed thai) I am, but up until that moment, I had no idea there was such a record. Thankfully the man never chopped his volunteer in half. It would have really slowed him down if he'd had to find a new one for every water- melon. The sound on the television was turned down when I saw an infomercial for doublewide lawn chairs. There was a shot of the doublewide lawn chairs; then a shot of the doublewide lawn chairs in different colors; then a shot of .people wearing sunglasses, smil- Free Estimates At'fordable Pricing Reliable Service Job Site Clean-up Insured it, Brandon Scheidemann Cell: 402.984.7346 Home: 4o2.773.olo2 r .....................  ..................... : ...........

We appreciate your understanding of this charge, rag, and sitting on the doublewide lawn chairs; then a shot of different people wearing sunglasses, smil- ing, and sitting on the doublewide lawn chairs, then all of it again, and again, and again. I imagined the TV announcer saying, "You're going to need a doublewide lawn chair if you sit in your recliner all day watching infomercials." The other reason I' ve made my unilateral decision to observe Na- tional TV TurnoffWeek is because of everything we're not doing while we're watching television-- read- ing, exercising, cleaning the house, doing yard work. Wait! Maybe I don't want to turn the TV off! I'm kidding! I've never needed a tele- vision to get me out of doing yard work. I tell my family that television was designed .specif'cally,. for people who are mcapacRated, in- carcerated, or folding their laun- dry. They don't believe me, partl) because they don't think laundry needs to be folded. "But think what you're doing," I say. "Sitting on the couch, watch- ing other people live fake lives, while yours is passing you by." This line of reasoning always in. spires them to nod dumbly and ask if I've seen the remote.
