My Top 10 Today’s Read Picks of 2021

Growing up listening to rock ‘n’ roll radio, I always had my ear tuned to the weekly Top 10 countdown. For many of us Boomers, those hit songs, selected on the basis of radio airplay across the country, were the soundtrack of our youth. As enjoyable as it was to hear these hits in descending order, with the #1 song played last to goose the excitement, I often found myself disagreeing with the ranking. Why was my favorite song #4 on the chart, not #1? These and other burning questions made me question the Top 10 ranking. I knew I could it do better if I’d only had the chance. So, with the new year fresh upon us, I figured it’s a good time to create my own Top 10 list. But instead of songs, I’ve assembled a list of my 10 favorite Today’s Read stories from the past year. I hope you enjoy my look back on these features.

NEW YORK—As we prepare to ring in a new year, the optical industry is gearing up to raise awareness about glaucoma. Prevent Blindness, the nation’s oldest voluntary eye health organization, is joining January’s National Glaucoma Awareness Month by offering a variety of free educational and awareness-building resources to help prevent unnecessary vision loss from one of the world’s leading causes of blindness.
