Major newspaper calls tonight...
Agent: "We want to give you a free 3-month subscription..."
Me: "That's nice, but we don't read newspapers, we have the Internet..."
Agent: "But we would deliver it free to your house, you have nothing to lose..."
Me: "My wife hates to have to throw out all this paper. Sorry."
We get a couple of community rags thrown at us weekly. Much more interesting (than city), less ads, less pulp to recycle.
TV news is exhausting. It has the immediacy of an internet feed combined with hyped-up headlines and ... those cussed ads.
The news gadget on the Android lets me be selective. Ads are few (and sometimes targeted (by topic rather than by snooping on me!)). The articles are relevant because I indicated interest in the topic. But there don't seem to be any "investigative journalists" in those channels. Just wish I could print it: easier on the eyes and good for those dead zones.
