“The television, that insidious beast, that Medusa which freezes a billion people to stone every night, staring fixedly, that Siren which called and sang and promised so much and gave, after all, so little.”
—Ray Bradbury (1920-2012), author, The Golden Apples of the Sun, 1953. (Thanks to alert WORDster Tony Seton)
