Switchin' Flies

by Barney Nelson
 
Sometimes it seems like this country is such a mess that nothing could possibly help. I always blamed it on tv, so never owned one. But . . . after I retired from schoolmarming, I bought my first ever tv and now think maybe it ain't so bad. I have long been preaching that a big part of what ails us is that we have convinced our children that money equals happiness and real work is to be avoided: move to the city, get into technology, don't get your hands dirty, don't sweat except at the gym, get a desk job.
