Day 8 in The Beat Handbook is titled, "On Watching Television." It references the below passage from The Dharma Bums.
Indeed, I watch entirely too much television, despite my agreement with Jack that disconnecting from the "Master Switch" is important. But, as I say in my book, this is about you, not me. If Jack's plea resonates, do something about it. If not, don't.
It's up to you.
