When I was a little kid we would always take long, 7 hour, drives to see my grandmother in Florida. To keep my sister and me entertained, my parents had a nice little TV for us to watch VHS tapes one. Well now I'm in high school and we don't use the TV anymore so I was wondering, would there be a way I could use a normal, 4x3 SD TV as a video monitoring for editing?

There are ways, but for what purpose? Unless you're shooting SD. It won't give you a true reference, unless you have it calibrated nicely; not impossible, but you'd need to drop bars onto it. There is a company called Canopus which makes a fire-wire to SD box which Final Cut Pro sees just as another deck and has bi-directional video flow. A few hundred bucks for one last I checked. I use one sometimes when I need to do a live flash stream for whatever reason.
