99 words In Praise of TV Commercials

If it weren't for television commercials I probably wouldn't get any things that I "have to do" done. Tonight during a break in the nightly news I cleaned up the dishes and loaded the dishwasher. Other times I've filled the bird feeders or performed my pre-bed ablutions and not missed a beat in the program.

It's important to have times like these when the thing you are doing becomes so unpleasant that you actually jump at the opportunity to do something that you consider slightly less vexatious.

I also watch a lot of public television. Especially during pledge week.
