Snuggies for a good cause

At a retreat I was at a few weeks ago, a speaker talked about the great temptation of today of just “checking out” rather than engaging in the world and its problems. You sit on the couch and watch worthless, stupefying cable television programming late into the night. A symptom of this disease: You know about Snuggies, the blanket with arms, advertised on such programming.

Most of us at the retreat laughed sheepishly because, indeed, we had seen the commercials for Snuggies, the type of mail-order product that garners the label, “As seen on TV!” in stores.
