    Maiken Scott reports on the growing concern with kids interacting more with computer screens than with the real world.  Gallup Poll Editor-in-Chief Frank Newport shares his thoughts on George Gallup Jr., who died earlier this week.  Students and faculty from Drexel’s Screen and Playwriting program join us to talk about Off Campus, the student-created sitcom that’s airing on CW Philly and snagging awards.  And Peter Crimmins finds the origins of the Christmas carol “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” written at a church on Rittenhouse Square.
