It seems like for half of my life – or at least for most of my adult life – we’ve been a country at war. Flipping through the TV channels makes me think we like it this way. If it’s not a WAR it’s simply not a contest worth having.
Look at this list of TV shows:
Junkyard wars (Note this was called Scrapheap Challenge in the UK)
Cupcake wars (Seriously? Cupcakes? Why?)
War at home (This one’s a sit-com!)
