If an average person on the subway turns to you, like an ancient
mariner, and starts telling you her tale, you turn away or nod and hope
she stops, not just because you fear she might be crazy. If she tells
her tale on camera, you might listen. Watching strangers on television ,
even responding to them from a studio audience, we're disengaged --
voyeurs collaborating with exhibitionists in rituals of sham community.
Never have so many known so much about people for whom they cared so
little. -- Wendy Kaminer commenting on testimonial television in "I'm
Dysfunctional, You're Dysfunctional".
