>>Ah yes, the obligatory smartass remark about public radio funding from
Brian. (snip) <<

to which Brian responded with very valid and not-out-of-line nor "smartass"
points, concluding:
<<Shall I continue?>>

Brian:  AMEN.

Aaron:  time to drop the sanctimonious stuff about Public Radio, from which
you derive your income.  (you DO get paid, right?)

time and again, Aaron, you stray a bit far from the topic and wind up on the
soapbox.  the day Public Radio stops getting federal funds (which are
provided by, um... oh yeah, the taxpayers), then preach away.  on this
point, imo (and there's nothing humble about it this time), you were way off

in most cases, i'm guilty of being a smartass.  but then again, i'm nothing
but a crass commercial broadcaster. (with pretty damn good ratings and a
sold-out morning show... underwriters need not apply)
