Re: Lydon resigns from WBUR

I have been very quiet on this subject waiting until it's resolution. 
The AP story did get one major point wrong.  It was WBUR, not Chris and
Mary that created The Connection, Chris auditioned for the show and was
hired by WBUR to be its host.  Chris did not "create" it.  Tom and Ray
however did approach WBUR with the Car Talk idea and therefore are its
creators.  A big difference.
