    So unplug those TVs tomorrow and get out and enjoy life!

    Go for a bike ride, fish, surf, ski, make love, or simply read a good book.

    I'm looking forward to a great "No Television Day"!

    What is "television"?

    Sounds insidious.

    Nope. I'm going non-stop all day long, working hard to take care of things. I'm beat by 8 or 9pm and enjoy relaxing with a good show or two. Looking forward to watching Kevin Bacon's new show 'The Following' tomorrow night. Just because you watch some tube doesn't mean you don't do anything else.

    I plan to avoid staring at any digital billboards, to be totally immersed in the glory of it all.

    Nice that they picked a day with very little sport for this action.

    In my apartment, it's "Watch no news stations" day. What a coincidence that day falls on Obama's 2nd inauguration

    That's just stupid. When is 'No Reading Day'? When is 'No Transportation Day'? If you want to go ride a bike, go ride a fucking bike. Don't make a big drama production out of it.

    I read while the TV is on. It's called "multi-tasking."

    Been known to make love with the television on as well...
