I have long noticed that the news has a specific incessant rhythm and hum, regardless of content. The news always fills whatever space there is to fill; only the decibel level goes up and down. New stories crowd out old stories and no story is ever resolved. After September 11th, the news headlines switched from sex to terror, without missing a beat. This diary and calendar demonstrates the texture of the news. -Paula Scher
