Take Two By Patty Paralemos 8-2 It was the day before my thirteenth birthday. I was in a great mood. The sun was shining brightly. I was up early that morning to see Lady Diane marry Prince Charles. That evening I was sitting outside with my friends. The stars were shining brightly. I wished on the first star I saw. I wished that my birthday would be great and that my party would be a success. We were sitting on the steps of my friends house talking about the party, when suddenly Lori fell backwards off the stoop! Luckily, I was there to break her fall. She escaped without a scratch. I started to have pains in my left shoulder. I thought it was nothing but then it really began to hurt and I decided to go home. My mother was worried since I could hardly move my left arm. My father told me to sleep on it and if it still hurt in the morning we would go to the hospital. So, taking his advice, I went to sleep. The next morning, my birthday, I awoke early. I couldn ' t even move. My whole body hurt. So, we went to the Emergency Room at Booth Memorial Hospital. The nurse filled out the insurance forms. She gave me a peculiar look when I told her the day of my birth. When my shoulder was finally ex-rayed, the doctors found that I had cracked my collarbone! I had to wear a brace on my shoulder for a month! I couldn ' t go swimming for the rest of the summer. I had to cancel my party. " Cut! " the director cried. " What kind of joyful birthday scene is this? Start it all over... Take two! It was the day before my thirteenth birthday...

CktCi JlCU£Lte t J An Interview With Mr. Kreizman By Stefanie Szumilo 8-1 Reporter: Do you enjoy watching TV? Mr. Kreizman: Sometimes, it really depends on the show. Reporter: About how many hours per day do you spend watching TV? Mr. Kreizman: All in all, about an hour. Reporter: Do you think TV is worthwhile? Mr. Kreizman: I think that very few programs today are of any real value. Reporter: How do you feel about soap operas? Mr. Kreizman: I think that they are very unrealistic. For instance, a person can have a fatal disease and have only six months to live, and about eleven years later, he has only five months to live. Reporter: How about sports coverage? Mr. Kreizman: The high school and college sports are good, but I can ' t see giving these " professionals " a half a million dollars each year. Most of them don ' t earn it. Reporter: What do you think about violence on TV? Mr. Kreizman: Although any violence, whether on TV or not, isn ' t good, I ' d rather see it on television than in real life. The violence I ' d like to see is everyone throwing their TVs out the window! Reporter: What is your view of explicit language on TV? Mr. Kreizman: There really is no reason to limit the language on TV. You hear it anywhere you go anyway. Reporter: How do you feel about commercials? Mr. Kreizman: I believe they are the greatest insult to human intelligence. I can ' t understand why grown men and women want to squeeze toilet paper. Reporter: How does TV differ in France? Mr. Kreizman: In France they only have about three or four channels. Each channel has limited shows and very few commercials. Reporter: Do you think TV is good for kids? Mr. Kreizman: I think it ' s pathetic to have these youngsters subjected to the torture of sitting in front of a 19 " BOOB TUBE! 39
