    The only thing I would add is besides all the time spent at work, many Americans spend an inordinate amount of time getting to and from work.  Long commutes of an hour or more-EACH WAY-are the norm where I live.  My own workplace moved someplace much further from where I live just last week, which means I've spent all this past week getting used to being a "commuter" (I used to live and work in the same town).  It really, really sucks.  I used to have an extra hour or so a day to read the news and stay informed.  No longer.  Lemme tell ya, I can't fill out the work at home paperwork fast enough.  Most Americans don't have that option, however.

      When I lived in Brooklyn for a while, I got to read on the subway.

      Now I live in PA, but take the bus to work: so I have time to read there, too.  Sure beats sitting in traffic, fuming.

      To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. Al Franken

        My city is trying to get better transit options, especially for those that live south of downtown, but it's slow-going.  I don't get it-I live outside of Seattle, so you'd think all us god-hating liberals would have come up with some awesome public transit options by now. In reality however, not so much.
