There's a much wider choice on Gocomics. I get lots that only appear in US newspapers, and not in all of those! And they're free...

That's the problem. I can spend a couple of hours a day keeping up with the comics on Gocomics. I need to learn to be more selective. (-:

Mine are free too...as long as I pay my paper subscription...'-}}

I don't know why but I'm not interested in reading the comics online just as I'm not interested in reading the newspaper online although for the newspaper, it may be The Washington Post's sucky website (yes...I know there are other papers online but I'm not interested in reading those either)...'-}}

I stopped my subscription to the paper when I found I was never reading the paper except for once a week or so. I did miss the comics though, so I subscribed online as a way to not miss them.

Becauise of my hearing loss, the paper is the way I get news--can't hear the radio and tv new is live captioned which is wonderful when it's something really important but for day to day, it's exhausting...'-}}

I can well imgaine it would be and I can't begin to imagine your frustration. My hearing is now down to almost nothing, so I have to turn up the volume really loud. I'm lost when I go to a movie or hear someone speaking, as I miss much of what is said.

Hearing aids might well help...pricey though and rarely, if ever, covered by insurance...but certainly worth investigating...

Most regular--non-news--tv programming is closed captioned...have you turned on the closed caption option on your tv or cable set top box?
