Narration: Timelessness

JAMA. 2016;315(5):520. doi:10.1001/jama.2015.17068

The answer to the recent shortage of newspapers in New York city, and perhaps to other problems, lies in reading the New York Times 14 days late or, preferably, later. Under this scheme the reader has a supply of newspapers less likely to be interrupted, and ultimately develops a sense of perspective, judgment, and aloof serenity which renders any newspaper strike ineffective. To discover how much news percolates through even though the daily paper is lacking, to view world events in their proper perspective, to allay the anxious and driving hurly-burly of the day, and to attain greater self-sufficiency and less dependence on the vicarious experience of the misfortunes and successes of others, don’t read today’s paper today!
