Voices...I hear Voices...

I vaguely remember reading an interview a long time ago with Camille Paglia, and what sticks in my mind was how she attested to doing serious scholarship while having the TV on in front of her. That sounded like a challenge, but maybe fun, to me.

I think she or the interviewer tied that to postmodernism, the multiplicity of voices, blah, blah. Like I said, I vaguely remember...

But when I try to do the same, say, read a journal submission on Dewey, I hear..."I like my mustard in one color...yellow...and I have a Discover Card."

Now, how can one do focused reading when such funny drivel issues forth from the tube?
