Springfield listener: Radio never warned me

At the risk of sounding like Rep. Weiner, my e-mail program sent
this post a little before I was ready.  I did want to add the fact
that this was a letter to the editor, and trim the quote.  I do
like to follow the list rules.

But it was properly attributed, with quotation marks around
the woman's words, the fact that she told this to the
Boston Globe, and her name at the bottom of her statement.

Her words are important to consider for broadcasters who serve
up so many hours of automated programs from distant sources, to
listeners who expect there's some kind of local presence keeping
watch at the station.
