Thanks so many for letting me know that are down 15 to 1 to the in the 6th inning. I like to think the Cards are done scoring runs for the weekend--and the Cubs are saving their strength.

I have some laryngitis this week (drawback in this work), but it reminds me of one of my wife's greatest ad-libs. I had to give a speech at a Chicago Museum event, but lost my voice. She read my remarks & began, "Tonight is a wonderful occasion. My husband has laryngitis."

This is what it’s come to: I wouldn’t be flabbergasted if invited Vladimir Putin to throw out the first pitch of the World Series this fall. (And Putin would joke, “I will pretend it is a reporter...”)

Remember, RT's are not endorsements (& lifelong fans are in no position to question such judgment). But the argument should be heard!

I don't know what's happened to them folks in this photo. But I'm gonna guess that the children are NPR listeners.

So and I figured out we always begin talking about music, sports, or politics, about which we have a lot of opinions and experience. But it takes just a few minutes for us to make a turn from that and start talking about our daughters. And we both think that's fine.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I knew Adrian a little, and always appreciated that his role in lifting the spirits of those in service didn't end when he took off his uniform, but continued his whole life:

Sure is. I've always been honored to have readings there--and just to linger there, too.

This is pointed and eloquent. I like the ambassador, and understand what he was trying to say, and take on bigotry. But Trevor Noah wins the point.

Bob Edwards always thought (and I agreed) the person whose birthday was cited should be well-known enough not to need explanation. Saying, “Baseball player...singer...scientist...novelist “ won’t make them any more familiar to an audience.

Got an email opening, "Happy Anniversary," & panicked. Had I forgotten? "Happy Anniversary, Scott! It was on this date you made your very first OpenTable reservation..." So I guess NPR isn't the only place that gets a little crazy over anniversaries most people don't note.
