> Kari ElorantaI can't understand why you are down on NPR, Fresh Air, or Requiem.  The 
station is by far the best on the air and the book is stunning.  We are 
very fortunate to get the NY NPR station here in New Jersey.   There is a 
program hosted by Lennie Lopate in which relevent topics are discussed by 
authors and others who have expertise in their subjects.  I spend  alot 
of my day in the car and NPR is a link to sanity.
