A word I wish would come back in style: "Fellas." Doesn't that just sound better than, "guys"? I think so.
Edward R. Murrow on the television:
"This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires and lights in a box."
Yes, the media can be bad, as I hear so often in church, in school and in my family, but it can be good too, as Murrow said. The same go for guns, yes? So, really, media doesn't hurt people. People who choose to abuse media hurt people. (That'd be hard to put on a bumper sticker, though.)
