I am recovering from a sick day, listening to NPR mid-day. I have always thought that “Talk of the Nation” is lame, but:
CALLER: What can common listeners do?
HOST: Every last one of our listeners is extraordinary!
CALLER: What could the extraordinary listeners do today about climate change? Call their air-quality districts? That’s just a rhetorical question.
They’re just trying to remind us working stiffs what exciting days we are missing out on.
Several minutes later the Guest mentions that you could WALK TO THE STORE insted of driving. That is what I have been doing ever since I asked myself what I could do . . .
