During the average workday, I allow myself to take a couple “Internet
breaks,” little bursts of Tumblr and Gawker and other forms of web
candy that tug at my attention span like a needy kid. There’s one web
threshold I never step over on a weekday, though: the Mail Online.
The online outlet of the British tabloid is a one-way ticket to an
hours-long surfing spree of celebrity gossip and moral outrage. It’s not
web candy--this is web crack.
