You missed my point, as I feared you would.  This is not about Air 
America/good or Michael Savage/bad.   It's about an article I just read 
that says Savage's ratings went way up while other more 'moderate' talkers 
seem to have levelled off.  I wasn't asking about Savage and saying 
everyone on the left is marvellous.  But you did sort of prove my point 
about how polarised political conversations have become everywhere, 
including on radio.
