When the Booing Stopped
Remember at the cinema when there were no commercials before the previews?
Then when they put the commercials in folks booed the hell out of them.
When the booing stopped at least people made a point of talking through them.
Now. Now everyone watches cell phone ads and car commercials in muted daze, mouths slightly open, slow lines of drool dribbling down their chins.
As a prof of mine one said, commenting on Orwell's "1984,"
'Big brother doesn't need to watch us - we're watching him.'
