+Andrew Kelly Try doing audio books. There's an app (Overdrive) that lets you get 10 audio books at a time from the library, free.
So easy to listen while painting or working out, driving. Relaxing before bed. Waiting for an appointment.
You'd be surprised how much time is available. Plus, audio books don't strain your eyes, lol.
I average 8 books a week this way.

The most frequently cited culprits implicated in declining student resilience are "helicopter parenting" and an overly regimented K-12 education system. Yet feedback from parents and students tell a very different story
The most frequently cited culprits implicated in declining student resilience are "helicopter parenting" and an overly regimented K-12 education system. Yet feedback from parents and students tell a very different story — one in which the economy plays a starring role.

How polypharmacy is ‘America’s other drug problem’
An increasing number of elderly patients nationwide are on multiple medications to treat chronic diseases, raising their chances of dangerous drug interactions and serious side effects. Often the drugs are prescribed by different specialists who don’t communicate with each other. If those patients are hospitalized, doctors making the rounds add to the list — and some of the drugs they prescribe may be unnecessary or unsuitable.

A federal prosecutor once called Jesse Curtis Morton a threat to national security. Now, the former extremist says he is "trying to repair some of the damage" he's done. For more, watch the TV exclusive on tonight's PBS NewsHour.

How should media decide whether to publish controversial images?
When the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published cartoons of the prophet Muhammad in 2005, protesters set fire to Danish embassies. Flemming Rose, the paper’s culture editor at the time, was the target of an assassination plot. More than 10 years later, Rose sits with Hari Sreenivasan in New York to talk about freedom of expression around the world.

Images aside, would anyone argue that censoring the otherwise open-secret of Roosevelt's polio paralysis or Kennedy's various infidelities during their lifetimes have served any useful public purpose?

I'm not arguing for censorship per se, but aren't there things that simply aren't news-worthy that should be ignored? What happened to common sense and a sense of propriety?

For all the discussions I see frequently about the value of personal privacy, scandal rags or Facebook tend to void those same arguments and encourage voyeurism at best and nasty judgmentalism at worst since people have retreated behind the anonymity the Internet gives them.
