To celebrate this week, National Turn Off Your TV Week, I am encouraging everyone to keep their televisions ON. Every day this week, I’ll give good reasons to ignore this foolish idea that we need some non-profit organization in D.C. to tell us that if we just turn our TV’s off, kids will eat all their veggies and beg for more.

Over on Milwaukee Public Television, my very good friend and former colleague at WTMJ and Channel 10, Mark Siegrist displays his talent for putting together marvelous documentaries on religious topics with not one, but two special productions:
1) Milwaukee's Muslim Faithful
An estimated 15,000 Muslims live in Milwaukee, representing all walks of life, regions of the world, and hometown roots. Islam is emerging as a full partner in greater Milwaukee's religious traditions, but its often confusing to outsiders, misunderstood--even feared in the post 9/11 era. Broadcast journalist, Mark Siegrist, takes an in-depth look at how Islam is embraced and practiced locally, by featuring the daily life of the Muslims at work, school, and prayer. He focuses on the ethnic diversity, spirituality, and social impact of Islam in Milwaukee, and highlights the efforts of those working to overcome negative perceptions and stereotypes regarding their beliefs.
2) Milwaukee's Vowed Women of Faith
The Second Vatican Council of the 1960's encouraged nuns to lead a less cloistered life and integrate their vocations with society as a whole. The Archdiocese of Milwaukee is home to a diverse community of nuns, from hermits to social activists. With exclusive access, Host Mark Siegrist explores the diversity of religious lifestyles, work, and contributions to the local community made by Milwaukee's nuns.
