Keeping my ear to the Internet ground as I do sometimes turns up a story that gives me renewed hope for the human race. A genius called Mitch Altman has invented a universal remote that turns off almost any television. And it is small enough to fit onto a key ring.
If we are lucky this will create thousands, maybe millions, of anti-TV vigilantes. Each one fighting for our collective right not to have our minds filled with inane crap. Perhaps in desperation some people will be tempted to pick up a book.
