"We've become such a dumb, fat, bubblegum nation. Schlocky and superficial. Music, books, television. One of the heads of NBC recently said that the plan was to get people to tune in and mentally tune out. This wasn't an admission by the way, but a boast. Is it any wonder we have a television show called ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A SECOND GRADER and a president who isn't? I miss a little dignity in America."
From BOSTON LEGAL, Season 4, episode "The Gods Must Be Crazy"; air date: 5/14/08
I miss a little dignity in the damn WORLD, thank you very much!
