Words and Pictures

I get most of my news from NPR and the internet, while my husband prefers the TV. He cruises the twenty-four hour news channels. I get information overload from them because I can’t pay attention to both the scrolling captions and the story that’s being reported.

It seems like a more productive way to watch.
