The one station that carries it around here is sited in a city quite a good bit away from here, and it doesn’t come in very well down here in the Lair’s hollow. But up on the plateau you can hear it clearly, and I am reminded again of how much I used to enjoy listening to it.
But ever since the Trump election, everybody there seems to have gone full Rachel Maddow. Just found this comment I made almost exactly two years ago…
And having just finished my back-and-forth gig up the mesa on the other side of the plateau, I can testify that NPR’s Trump Derangement Syndrome has, if anything, become far more acute. No matter who’s talking, the only time anybody shuts the hell up about Trump is when they’re running a 30-minute piece about some poor LGBT school”girl” having a bad day at the pool or something. It’s enough to make me change the channel and find out if I can stomach current-day “country music.”
It’s sad, really. What are these poor people going to do when Trump is finally gone and the world hasn’t been wiped clean of life by (Trump-caused, no doubt) climate change? They’ll have nothing left to talk about at all.
