    This Just In

    It's gotten so that I very seldom read the paper because I know I'm gonna read something I'd be better off not knowing about, even if it's something as simple as an ad for a lost pet. I can get depressed all day just from reading something like that, and I can't get it off my...

    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...
