    Hi All,

    This just dropped in my inbox.

    The link goes to some interesting question, which I have not followed
    through to the end yet.

    It's an email 'dialogue' between James Fallows of Atlantic Monthly and Todd
    Gitlin, a professor of culture, journalism, and sociology at New York
    University. Fallows and Gitlin are discussing the latter's new book - Media
    'I've thought about the argument of your book often in the past week, and
    not just because I knew I'd have a chance to ask you questions about it. The
    heart of your message, or so it seems to me, is that we don't spend enough
    time thinking about how awash we are in artificial stimuli of all sorts. '
    This is a stimulating exchange.
