Today’s highly interesting read (07/05/17): Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Today’s read touches on a stark reality about the lifestyle of the vast majority of Americans. This has become the behavioral norm:

Sometimes, when I walk down the street in the city, people drift by me in a trance-like, almost catatonic, state plugged into the broader digital collective, and oblivious to most things going on around them. There is now a near constant stream of information and communications being fed into our brains via our iPhones. Outside of my ninety-year-old mother, the rest of the U.S. is slowly overdosing on the crack-cocaine epidemic of our time: information overload. You just can’t escape it. Because now, it’s a way of life.

However columnist David Levin says there’s a way out from this way of life, and he offers a thoughtful remedy.

I seriously doubt many  people would heed his advice.

Good stuff here.
