Are healthcare CEOs paid so little that they can't afford two TVs? Story below from the Boston Post. Naturally, his wife bailed him out.

"Southcoast Health president and CEO Keith Hovan was arrested over the weekend for allegedly striking his wife during a domestic dispute that escalated after the couple argued over which TV show to watch, according to legal filings."

My wife and I had separate TVs for decades. She used to say that was the secret to a good marriage.

Retired people need two cars more than TVs.

Back in the 50s there weren't enough shows to warrant more than one TV!!

I had a friend who said he wasn't going to buy a color TV because he got only three channels.
