Couldn't agree more. One of the best radio moments I will ever 
experience was Simon in the wake of 9/11, actually when the airliner 
crashed into the NJ neighborhood, he was interviewing a firefighter who 
was telling the horrible story of the loss of his friends, family, 
neighborhood. Simon paused, took a breath, and started to cry while 
asking him, "How can you stand it? How do you do it?" Even before that 
moment I have considered Scott Simon in a class by himself at NPR.
