    Why Do I?

    Tears of frustration, tears of anger, tears of fear, tears of sympathy and sadness...almost anything in the damn paper can set me off. But I love to read. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have reading material of SOME kind. That includes the newspaper. Both on Sunday [Times...
