And as just a side thought, look through this board. This site attracts people with the means to travel; I doubt there are very many welfare bimbos and crack heads posting here. However, while there are some really good questions asked here, and I don't mean to offend anyone's sensibilities here, but man, there are some really dumb questions asked here, too. And they get answered!
On the TV mode, it's not just recent TV that is mind numbing; look at the highly rated shows from the 70s and early 80s; i.e Laverne and Shirley. Sorry to dumb (or dump) on you Wisconsin. How about Three's Company? How about Erkl (sp?).
