No Filter

I don’t often watch TV. (I do watch Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, so I’m not making any kind of abstinence vow.) I just don’t like the news much anymore, and over the past few years sitcoms have changed or I have changed and they no longer hold my interest. But my husband continues to watch […]
