    Kieth who? Oh, that sports commentator. His snide remarks fit snugly inside the minds of muscle-brained sports junkies, but made a mockery of real news. If Olberman becomes a preacher, his fans errrr, 'faithful adherants' can all yell "Touchdown !" after his opening prayer. About Olberman's face...it looks like a sharp ear of corn. He and John Kerry must be blood relatives.

    @Philip: Admit it, you at least watched part of his show when you channel surfed.

    @Cesar...the only channel surfing I ever did was when we used to pull a half-sheet of plywood behind our old farm truck attatched to a boom so we could surf the irrigation canal. (we don't have any ocean waves to surf in Colorado, but we wanted to surf. We call it 'canal surfing') I've never owned a TV, though I've probably spent thousands of hours watching with friends and relatives. The ones who channel surf...very annoying. I suspect they have very short attention spans. I've noticed too over the years that the 'channel surfer' type have a real hard time maintaining eye contact. As if their own brain is going 'click-click-click' as it roams from one random thought to the next.

    There is an epidemic of channel surfing in America, except when watching news, or a favorite show. I have never had the pleasure of living in a large open environment like a farm. If I did, like good s*x, it would add years to my life. Hard work is good, to a certain degree, I suppose.

    Hard work does have it's future rewards, whereas being lazy pays-off right away. I suspect channel surfers are too lazy to watch an entire program. They seem to be more interested in what else is on than they are with what's on right now.
