We don't watch TV in our home. We gave it up years ago in favor of something a bit more productive. We did watch the Olympics and maybe we will catch some debate stuff, but not much more. We do however watch movies on our DVD player once or twice a week. That way I can remember how to use a remote control properly.
Last month, while watching a movie, I heard something that struck me as interesting. The character in the movie was watching Jeopardy. The movie was set in the 60's so it was a 60's version of Jeopardy and it was the real deal. Probably bought from the producers just for this movie. In this Jeopardy edition, the clue was "political left". The answer was "what is a radical?".
A radical. The contestant got it in about 2 seconds. Left equals radical. How obvious. Nowadays we assign lefties names like progressive, liberal, forward thinking, etc. What happened to radical? I think it is more befitting of the group.
