Signs Of Greater Age (16)

1)Enjoying reading and the radio,
as much as your senses permit,
but disliking television, because the latter
embodies all too well the cult of youth.
And it embodies the idea of activity
for its own sake which is something
you need less of. 
Television is both overpowering
and transient, it has expanded further
than ever most people imagined it could,
or that it should ever have gained the right to.

2)In the reading and speech based radio
you enjoy liking the amount of sex,
violence and bad language it offers
because they are grafted on to strongly written characters,
whom you can enjoy because they are well made fictions
that are easy to set aside when their charm wears thin.
