You cannot be serious

This from the New York Times, is probably the most depressing article I've ever read.  How the journalist can justify parents taking their kids out for dinner with the sole intention of watching TV, is beyond me.  With the exception of the family that doesn't have a TV at home I fail to see the point of paying to watch TV.  In no way can going out for dinner and watching TV be considered a social activity, nor can it be considered a good way to improve a child's social interaction. 

The article refers to the dining table as having a "sanctified aura", it seems to imply that this isn't such a good thing and what we all need are TVs next to our knives and forks.  This is barmy.
