Nuke NPR

Significant other tells me he needs to hear human voices on the clock radio to get him up in the morning. It's true...if we were to set the dial to a music station, he'd sleep 'til noon. So for love, I endure the AM torture of National Plutocratic Radio.

To get you started and chipper for the day, the compassionate crew at NPR regularly air tales of torture, tooth-pulling and and mental illness on top of which they slather 15 minutes of charmers like Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz or Dick Cheney interviewed by Valley-Girl concerned airhead Renee Montagne.

This week NPR is churning out another patriotism drive and freedom fest featuring Iraqi War apologists and generals because, you know, the Prez's numbers are down.

I stopped commuting 6 years ago.

Has NPR really turned sour?

Wow - I guess I've really been out of touch.

I just looked up and read about the Bob Edwards incident. In my defense, I was out of the country at the time. hehe
