The more things change, the more they stay the same?

Ran across this quote on www.pluggedinonline.com:
 
"Most of what passes for legitimate entertainment is inferior or foolish and only caters to or exploits people's weaknesses. Avoid being one of the mob who indulges in such pastimes. Your life is too short, and you have important things to do. Be discriminating about what images and ideas you let in your mind. If you yourself don't choose what thoughts and images you expose yourself to, someone else will, and their motives may not be the highest. It is the easiest thing in the world to slide imperceptibly into vulgarity. But there's no need for that to happen if you determine not to waste your time and attention on mindless pap." —Roman philosopher Epictetus (AD 55-135), in his work The Art of Living
 
Some Questions for Today...
 
Rick  has these questions on his blog today, and I'll answer them:
 
1) What's the last thing you listened to on the radio?--A song on 101QFL:  "Move or Move Me," by FFH.
 
2) What's the last program you watched on TV?--The "What The...?" Awards on the E! Channel.  Pretty amusing show that pokes fun at celebrities and reality TV.
 
3) What's the last thing you prayed?--"Father, give my mom peace, strength and some rest today..."
