The "dumbing down" of America, a partial list:
The O.J. Simpson mania.
Geraldo, Sally Jessey, et al.
America. Everything is show biz.
Poisonous snake pet owners.
The illiterate anchors on television.
Paying for sports autographs.
"Ya know . . . ya know . . . ya know . . . (as in "please understand me").
Cut the taxes. Cut the programs.
Sale! Up to 70 percent off!
Many, many more. And down and down we go.
