Eye level

Just returned from my first followup appointment with my surgeon who performed my shoulder repair. While waiting and waiting and waiting, I noticed that all the art was hung at the proper eye level height. However, the TV monitors were uniformly hung ar ceiling height, much above eye level. Would it not make more sense to hang the monitors at a more comfortable viewing height, since the monitors will be more viewed than the art?

God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy

God, Guns, Grits and Gravy by Mike Huckabee. New title, but same old Obama bashing by a right-wing politician. After the election, he can repurpose the material as a recipe book, or a NRA manifesto. Otherwise nothing new. Huckabee is a better writer than most on the right and he could find work writing political biographies for other candidates who don’t write very well, like Marco Rubio. There are better ways to spend your time than reading this book, like watching your grass grow.
