These days when I fly carriers that offer seat-back TV service, I am always struck by the contrast between coach and first class. In coach it seems most people spend most of their time watching TV. But when you walk through first class, the seats are littered with well-thumbed newspapers and magazines. Is that heavy reading habit something those people acquired after they started flying first class? Or is it how they got there? My money's on the latter.
Mine too. TV's okay, but as a habit it's destructive.
