I unplugged my video cassette recorder yesterday.

It's not an effort to jump on the "green" bandwagon, but saving electricity is never a bad idea.

I looked at my VCR yesterday, and I realized I haven't used it in months. The first reason is there's nothing on TV worth taping. The second reason is the few shows I'm interested in seeing are now on the internet.

I wonder how long it will be before I unplug the television.

By the way, thank you PA Senate for derailing the anti smoking legislation. I hope yesterday's "no" vote gives you an opportunity to craft something stronger and get it on the fast track. Unfortunately, I fear it's just the latest attempt to please the special interests and disregard the will of the people.
