If I die anytime soon - and I have no plans to do so at the moment - please see that the first paragraph of my obituary reads, "He was past president of the University of Georgia National Alumni Association." You can save for later paragraphs the part about my being often mistaken for Brad Pitt and my uncanny ability to put commas where they don't belong.

I remember watching the first season of Survivor in 2000. It was a new kind of television and seemed exciting. Television reviewers wondered if it would catch on. Little did they know how big reality TV would become. 14 years later, there are countless reality shows and entire networks devoted to the genre. It's too bad, really, because most of reality TV ignores the original mission of television: to entertain, to educate and to inform. It's time to be very choosy about the reality TV we watch.
