On the box
‘The Apprentice’
This new 'reality TV' programme in the States (read: gimmick game show) is educational in that it might show, in caricatured form, what corporate types are really like. (Rather like the now-gone 'Boot Camp' gave civilians some idea of the brainwashing - admittedly necessary to train real soldiers - that takes place in the Marines, though that show undermined the military unit-building with the fact that the contestants were competing against each other for money.) Based on seeing it in passing...

• The corporate world really does suck - what 'team'-think (a corruption of the concept of the church?) and by-the-bootstraps conservatism (originally, free will and individual responsibility?) turn into without the gospel.
• Even without my handicaps, I wouldn't want to be in the same room with these yuppies.
