I've always had an affection for ice skating (those VHS tapes I packed up last week were primarily ice skating) and tonight we've caught the 2006 State Farm U.S. Figure Skating Championships. While listening to the commentaries... and particularly my husband's reaction to the commentator Dick... I came up with the idea that the next generation of TVs will have the same function that chat rooms do. You'll be able to selectively ignore the people you don't want to listen to. I mean, they have Peggy Fleming, Kurt Browning, and Katarina Witt for God's sake! Why do they need Dick? He's just being a Dick anyway. If my TV had an *ignore* button next to the *mute* button you can be pretty sure I'd be using it right now. It would keep us from yelling at the TV.
