He who seeks rest finds boredom. He who seeks work finds rest. -- Dylan Thomas
That is just how I feel about television.
C-SPAN!C-SPAN!Now on C-SPAN 2 John Keegan is talking about his book, The History of Warfare.Next will be Noam Chomsky speaking on Failed States at West Point.I recommend, for those who have the time, to watch C-SPAN for about 2-5 years, and look up the details on every crazy theory you hear about. By the end of your years we can talk sense about US politics, and you might even be able to teach me something.Not that actually reading books can't be useful, too.
Josh,Sounds like C-Span has an obsession with military books. While I'm glad their there, I'm not that interested in studying about or learning about the military.That's why it's so hard to watch the History Channel. I think the "H" stands for Hitler because it's really just the World War II channel.
Books???Weren't books those paper things people read, before the Internet?I've got a room full of them, but most times, my laptop seems handier.FWIW, reading books is still more desirable ;-)
