    And that’s back when there were only 4 channels.

    Funny, I was just thinking about this story arc this morning. Let’s just say that the effect on Lucy will be quite interesting.

    The TV is Lucy’s blanket.

    I bet this is how pre-TV people also reacted when the radio was taken away.

    We went thru something similar with my dad in the seventies; he would turn the TV up loud and “hide” in the cop shows (sirens etc). One day my brother unscrewed the back cover and pulled a couple of wires loose. “Oh, it’s broken!” He knew dad was so lazy it would take him weeks to take it in to be fixed. After a few days, mom turned it to the wall and threw a cloth over it. We went without a TV for a couple of years.

    If they had all the cable channels then, Lucy would probably have a cardiac arrest, or a nervous breakdown.

    These days, it would be iPhone, tablet, TV, DS, console, and laptop. And Lucy would STILL find a way to mindlessly stare at some form of technology.

    These days it would just be internet instead of TV.

    I remember when my mom DID do this. Sadly, the only reason she allowed the TV back in the house was 11/22/63.

    People feel that way about the Internet today.

    Karl Marx mentioned that “religion is the opiate of the masses”. When this comic came out, he would have said that “TV is the opiate of the masses”. Now he would say that the Internet is the real drug of choice. I was riding the El in Chicago a while ago. Every single person had their eyes glued to their cell phones.
