I find television to be very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book.*

Dear Johnny,

You are an avid reader.  Your entire face lights up when I produce a book, and you passionately kick and laugh and try to eat the pages as I turn them over for you.  We are still lingering on the picture books, but soon enough we'll go on all sorts of amazing journeys, following the adventures of the inhabitants of Middle Earth, the predicaments of a high-school drop out who dislikes phonies, the quest for finding a great white whale; the struggle of one nation for independence, and of one family for a better life on the other side of a country; we'll witness time transcending love and fantastic tales set in space; and we'll even invent our own stories, inspired by our own wonderful adventures.
