...of the modern day world is the TV. And no, I'm not talking about the heroic fallen angel from the beginning of Paradise Lost, nor am I speaking of the strangely empowering figure behind the Church of Satan. The decrepit being towards the end of Milton's tale and the seducing serpent of the Bible fit better.
TV is truly for dimwits as it dims ones wits. And my wits are nearing their end, for the dimming has advanced to a wit-threatening stage.
Help ye would-be heroes of yore! False saviors called "movies" try to recruit me into their own dangerous fold, but I look to you first, sex and a good book.
