WWW. "Bill's got some BIG IDEAS about starting up a kind of government TV system, including some sort of TV that teaches children. That sounds good, at least on paper--especially if it teaches the kids to tell the difference between what's TV and what's real in the first place! But I hope he's careful about the politics of all this. I think I get what he's saying about all those commercials and I hear British TV is all right, but we don't want to end up with something like the Russians have."--Excerpt from a journal entry, dated approximately February 1964, found at an estate auction in Marshall, Texas, in January 2007
