Events like the recent shootout and bombings in New York and New Jersey have had many of us glued to our screens. So have cat videos, and the presidential election, Emmy red-carpet looks, and the latest celebrity tweet. There’s always something online to capture our attention. But at what cost? Author and internet pioneer Andrew Sullivan says it’s the ultimate cost – being human. Sullivan wrote about his struggle to regain his humanity in the current issue of New York Magazine.
