Roaring toward oblivion

Television is a device for burning time. In the evenings we sit before it supine and unaware that we are shoveling the hours onto the blaze like the furnace of a great steam engine. The engine rolls faster and faster and as the glow illuminates our faces we are deaf to the whistle and oblivious of the heat as we roar toward oblivion.
