Relaxing at home on a Sunday afternoon.  Trying not to think too deeply.  Flipping channels and updating the 6 or 7 websites I maintain for clients and friends.  After a couple of times around, the tele landed on Streetfighter, the Jean Claude Van Damme movie from recent time.  I can’t help but wonder, is this where we are?  This movie is just plain silly.  The acting is awful and every scene involving a female has her giggle like a ten-year-old, even if she has just disposed of a bad guy.  This is, of course, just one example of the way the quality of entertainment has been going down, down, down.  Look at the lineup of shows for the new season.  Busting to the seams with “reality” shows.  Say that that is what the public wants but please note nothing, and I mean nothing could cost less to produce than a reality show.  Can we reach a bit higher?  Can our entertainment reflect our desire to bring about a better world?  Shouldn’t it?
