The downfall of civilization can be traced directly to the practice of putting televisions in taverns. Men stopped talking to one another. Then they went home and started talking to their wives to whom they hadn’t talked in centuries. This led immediately to wholesale divorce, which in turn led to women in the workplace and juvenile delinquency. Other ills too numerous and horrible to mention followed until men stopped wearing ties so they wouldn’t hang themselves.
The main problem with this, in my case, is that I never hung out in bars after I left the Army. So what's my excuse? Ah, well. S vol'kami zhit, po volchi vit'.*
