  November in Review : Four weeks ago I was hanging on every word of cutting-edge commentary uttered by Tom Ashbrook's guests (*) or the ol boys on MacNeil Lehrer (**), whereas now I'm more likely to tune in to Ira Glass or Chapter a Day. Or to talk to the person next to me, or sit in silence.

-----------------------
*And by that I mean whatever words they manage to get out before he cuts them off—in that Tom Asbrook way of his, that I admire so—to restate their idea for them and reduce it to just the right-sized piece for my discerning-yet-distracted-NPR-listening ear.
**Yes, I know the name has changed. I can't get over it. I still refer to the "Vintage Lounge," or whatever it is, as Gaidens. Are the U.S. and Canada WTO Members? No they're not, they're Contracting Parties to the GATT. You see where I'm going with this.
