Letter: Is anyone paying attention?
Sunday, October 7, 2012
The comic strip "Family Circus" published Sept. 30, titled "TV Watch," was a telling commentary of today's society. So many people fill their heads with the mindless pap of sitcoms, game shows, soap operas and the like but turn the TV off if an elected official or potential candidate comes on to give insights on how they want the government to run.
Then these same people are expected to vote intelligently. No wonder we keep sending people to elective office without any idea of what they stand for or represent.
