Your NPR fix for the day

Be sure to catch Weekend America (schedule varies) on your local NPR affiliate this weekend.

Artist James Plakovic discusses his work "World Beat Music", and map of the world rendered as a symphonic score.

As I've mentioned here before, I've known James since 1984, back when we all called him Jim. Well, not all of us called him Jim. His mom called him Jamie.

Note to James: for $100, I will delete that last sentence.

Heres a link to the online story by Weekend America:

And in case you haven't already visited, go to RIGHT NOW!

Lyle Lovett speaks to me

This may or may not explain my frame of mind on odd-numbered days.

In the Bunker

There are days when I wish I was the Comm Director for Obama's campaign.

Today I would be telling him to acknowledge that he said those things about working class voters, admit that he did not think the statement through very well, and try to briefly explain what he really meant.

Then he should say the following: "I know that I gave a bad answer. I was trying to be too cute by half when I said it. I know that this will not be the last mistake I make. One thing is for certain, I have not lied to you, unlike Mrs Sniperfire and her husband, Mr I-never-had-sex-with-that-woman."

The one thing that is appealing about Obama's inexperience is that he hasn't learned to be a complete and utter liar yet.

And I'm not even an Obama guy.

By the way, Mrs Clinton, I know it's easy for you to say that someone is an elitist. You know so much about being an elitist yourself.

Kathie Lee back in the saddle

Here in flyover, we prefer Kelly to Kathie Lee. That doesn't mean we dislike Kathie Lee.

She's Back! All I can say is that 1) she's had some work done (don't know that she needed it, she's always been attractive), and 2) she's had SOME WORK done (if you look a little lower on your TV Screen).

I realize that it is not right to objectify her like that, but this is flyover, and we've been trained by both coasts to check out the rack.

Still great legs, too.

Otherwise, her new gig hosting the needless 4th hour of Today met with mixed reviews. I didn't watch, I have a 8-5 job, and my gender is not the target audience. This is strange, because with the exception of Tom Shales of the Washington Post, all men dig Kathie Lee. Women find her polarizing, but men think she's cool. We all secretly wish our wives will look that good at age 55.
