Writing for Today’s World? by Christine Duncan

     It’s Superbowl Sunday as I write this and I have just heard of a new trend.  People are setting their Tivo to start further on in the game.  The reason?  They’re not interested in the sports, they want to see the commercials.

    I can’t even begin to tell you how depressed this made me.  Really?  The commercials?  What does this say about us as a society?

   Do we all really have so little on our minds?  

   Or are we all just zoning out? 

   How can we write for a generation who would rather watch the commercials than watch the game, rather watch the game than participate?
