  •  Thank you! (4+ / 0-)

    Printing this out (and probably the Cook piece) for my mother-in-law; she was worried yesterday that "things aren't looking good for Obama". She's been in a rehab hospital where her roommate only watches CNN and FOX, and she's been so negative about the way things are going for her healthwise so it's seeping into other areas as well.

      to another room w/ less R roommate?  A steady stream of Fox is sheer torture; CNN doesn't offset the negativity of FAUX!

      •  She's trying to get moved (0+ / 0-)

        because her roommate leaves the TV on till late at night, and turns it on early in the morning. Plus keeps the volume up so loud that mom-in-law can't even hear her own little transistor radio; I loaned her my Sony Walkman radio (that uses headphones on both ears) so she can listen to local news and the SF Giants baseball games, and hopefully that will help block out the TV cacophony. We're hopeful that she'll either get moved or she'll soon be well enough to move her to a new assisted living facility once she decides where she wants to go.
