From today's Chron:
If the TV show Survivor has conveyed one clear message to viewers, it's that people are dispensable.
When someone gets on your nerves, simply vote him off "the island."
If only the original stranded castaways had such voters'-rights knowledge. Yes, we're referring to (start humming now) Gilligan. The Skipper, too. The millionaire and his wife. The movie star. The professor and Mary Ann. (Cease humming.)
Just how would these 1960s characters fare in this low-on-tolerance survival game of the 21st century? When it comes to getting rid of simpletons and meek wimps, we ask: What island could have used this game more?
