Watching the Facebook - MSNBC debate on multiple screens

As I untrim the tree, I'm watching the Republican presidential primary debate on MSNBC. I'm watching the debate live on the big screen, with Facebook comments streaming and Tweetdeck chiming away.

Allison Linn originally shared:
Photographer Jim Seida and I have hit the road to find out what it's like to live on the nation's median household income of around $50,000 a year. The first piece in the project launched this morning, and I'm busy writing up tomorrow's installment on a military family in Coronado, Calif.
