By the way, might I suggest, for those of you who will be shutting off the radio in rage, and storming off into the sunset, that you try a few excellent alternatives to NPR?

Like CBC if you can get it. Non-NPR spoonfed, independent public radio in your markets (for those of you who live in or near major metros), so you can pick up excellent news and information programming like Democracy Now.

I mean c'mon people. If you've been listening to Bob Edwards for a long time, isn't it time to shake up your routine? Anyone who has been doing the same damn thing every morning for 25 years ought to shot out of a canon to shake up their safe little world. I say thank you Bob, for going first.

Besides, when is the last time you heard great thinkers of our day like Chomsky or Nader in interviews on NPR?

Oh right--never!
