Ted Rall for December 10, 1996
The Contempt of Familiarity Narrator: In the near future, your newspaper will only have stuff you'll want to read! Everyone will receive an electronic paper custom. Tailored to their personal tastes. Woman: This is great! No more annoying society page! Narrator: Sure, we''ll lose a certain sense of community, but think of what we'll gain... Man 1: Did you hear about the tsunami? Man 2: No... I only read news about my immediate family. Narrator: ...total peace of mind! Man 1: I'm alone in my pod... where no one else matters!
