Ode to my newspaper
O where hast thou gone, newspaper mine?
Normally I love snuggling down with my paper and a cup of coffee. I read it in a very specific order (back page of the front section, letters to the editor, editorials/commentary, health and science pages, news, entertainment. Unless it's the Saturday paper. I read that one in a whole different order.)
Lately I haven't had time to read the paper at all. And I'm feeling a bit lost without my daily dose of print media: I haven't even read all the commentary about Canada's proposed Clean Air Act yet!
It's not just that I might be turning myself into an uninformed bozo (hopefully not); I also miss the ritual.
And I seem to have replaced it with a singularly unclean activity as far as air goes: commuting.
