The Hanging on Television
I know of an elderly man who farmed all his life and his bone were tired. About the same time he was too old to work was about the same time, in the 1950s, watching TV was becoming a way of life. Then he watched some TV, which wa new and a novelty to him. Often he would dose off while watching.
One day, at almost lunch time he said, “Turn on the television, they are going to hang that fellow at noon.”
