Tara and I just got back from 24 Hour Fitness, by way of Movie Madness, returning X-Files (season 1), whereas Angel (season 2) was still checked out.
What I noticed about the flatscreens at the gym tonight is most of them featured rather scantily clad folk, or not clad at all, but fig leaved with clever angle and blur techniques (a mainstream Playboy channel).
The rest of the screens were showing football.
What was far from obvious is that we were in a world at war, and that these were the losers.
Could Plato's Cave be any darker?
