The "Blog" Helps Society
Hey, remember that unsettling commercial where the kid is weirdly holding a wrench aloft inside a jewelry shop? I just saw that commercial this morning, and they have blown up the final shot, thereby CROPPING OUT THE WRENCH, restoring normalcy and making us all feel better. I can only assume it is thanks to the constant "blog" scrutiny of TV commercials that this important correction has taken place. You're welcome, America! And yet... am I just contributing to the homogenization that makes everything duller? I hope so!
