Commentary Or is there? Like Nova Scotia, where a journalist based in Halifax writes in the Times, “I Am Living in a Covid-Free World Just a Few Hundred Miles From Manhattan.” Back in 2004 ( you remember 2004, when all we had to worry about was George W.

Who says we’re “too wired?”

Commentary After an 18-hour Internet and Cable TV outage, all I can say is, “You can never be too wired!” You know how they’re always saying, “We’re too wired.” “We spend too much time looking at our screens.” “Things would be a lot less stressful if we would simply ‘unplug’ and begin to live inContinue reading “Who says we’re “too wired?””

Election Day is here. As you watch the results, ask yourself – why do people vote for Trump?
