I can barely see what I am typing. I could not begin to read any of
these posts were I to print them out. I am currently paying a grad
student $18 an hour to read to me a book which I feel I need as
background for a paper I am writing for April's Left Forum in New York.
The reason is macular degeneration. probably that is the result of
smoking from 1950 to 1990. I stopped in time to avoid emphysema, but
apparently not in time to preserve my eyesight.
I agree of course with Nancy's comment on Kate's post, but wish to add
I'm curious why Kate finds the fact that she is smoking a cigarette
something to boast of.
