From a reader:
Having looked at some of the web sites of the candidates, I have to say this: All the STUFF makes trolling through rather time-consuming and painful. I have a wireless network at home, so I can lay on the couch and surf in between naps, but really. The content is so similar looking, so dense and advertisment-ridden, that I’d rather get my info on CNN, FOX and the radio.
The internet really is nothing more than a dense glossy magazine with pages you can’t bend much. It may make it easier to contribute or buy stuff, but it’s harder to cover your face with it while you’re napping.
I think you’re right about the web.
I dread the concept of voting via the web (PLEASE DO NOT HIT RETURN REPEATEDLY OR YOUR VOTING CARD MAY BE CHARGED MULTIPLE TIMES).
TV is still the medium of choice. The candidates should use it wisely.
Now if I could just afford that 50″ plasma I’ve been scoping out…..
