TV scrolling across bottom of screen

Just sitting here in a campground watching the terrible destruction in the Boulder & Estes Park, Colorado area on TV and trying to read the scrolling across the bottom of the screen at the same time.

Do any of you have as much trouble as I do in trying watch what's going on on the screen and read the bottom of the screen at the same time? I'm sure the younger generation can probably do this but at retirement age I find it harder and harder to multi-task at the same time.

At home in Oklahoma during tornado season the weatherman will be on TV telling us where the storm is coming from and all the time across the bottom of the screen will be a scrolling list of counties to be affected. I get cross-eyed trying to keep up with all of it and trying to decide when to head for the fraidy-hole.

I also had a problem with trying to keep up with the stuff running along at the bottom of the news screen.
Fortunately I was able to resolve my dilemma by shutting off the news. The chances of getting hurt because I missed the scrolled warnings, 1%.
The chances of getting ulcers or having a heart attack from watching all the hell and damnation presented on the news, 50%.
I now live in ignorant bliss!!!!!
