New to this forum and on my second (rarely do I ever read a book twice) reading of the book. I am very upset with NPR at this moment. The pope coverage was extreme enough (an iterview in from the Vatican stated the history of the church as being 300 years old?) in it's coverage.
This morning, however, was the lowest of lows. They are "resurecting" a 1950's radio show called "This I Believe". It's apparently a chance for Americans to "talk to each other". You can bet what the major topic of "discussions" will be. The 50's! Please! What a regressive time in America if you were non-white, non-male, non-America born, and in any other way different!
Please send them your essays at npr.org. Especially if you are a free thinker and as angry as I am about the dangers we face due to the world views most American hold, unquestioningly.
