Solipsism, Politics and Facebook

I read a lot.

This is not meant as a brag or a boast but rather something that has occurred with this addiction I have formed to my tiny black information box called the Iphone.  Over the past couple of years I have come to the habit of repeatedly pressing the home button, entering my code and then staring at its bright beautiful screen.  

These actions often occur by themselves and I wonder why I am looking at my Iphone, what was it that I definitely need to know?  It is at this point that I find myself opening the folder with all my various news outlets of which I read not only one or two, but usually four of them plus a few articles of a magazine.
