Kids today don't know the glorious experiences they're missing. Back in the day, Saturday morning was the best time of the week. You'd get up early, and you'd be happy about it. You'd pour yourself a huge bowl of sugar disguised as cereal (and never disguised as nutrition). Then you'd turn the TV on, and let it assault you with a barrage of cartoons until noon ... or whenever American Bandstand or Soul Train or golf came on. Then you'd go back to whatever children did before they had cell phones
