How will our children learn about politics?!?!!? 

It's national child cruelty week... aka national turn off the TV week.

The Simpsons had a wonderful take on the "turn off" the TV thing (I don't dare speak of it directly). Their second season episode Itchy & Scratchy & Marge is not only one of my favorite episodes, but it features about the best animation ever done on the show when depicting the mischief Bart, Lisa, and the rest of Springfield's children are capable of when forced outdoors by a lack of tv. The animation is set to the Right of Spring (at least, I think that's the piece of music - SNPP says otherwise), and just depicts this ideallic childhood wonderland.

I would imagine that the caretakers of children on school vacation this week have happened upon no such grand miracles with their own children.
