LOL I know what you mean. Of course advertising is what pays the bills. I believe in a 30 minute show they are allowed to have 10 minutes of advertising. That is up from 8 minutes a year ago. Next year it may creep up again until all we'll be seeing is advertising. We are just pawns in a chess game of life that the very rich businesses have to brain wash into buying their products to make them even richer. You may be wise in getting rid of your TV but don't turn on radio, just more of the same advertising, just more local businesses.
