So tomorrow I will begin covering another radio show. This one will be NPR. I have, in the past, monitored The Morning Show (KPFA, now gone), Fresh Air and Talk of the Nation for a period of time (Talk of the Nation for only one month, that was all I could stand of it). I plan to monitior the new show for the month of April. May? I'll decide in May.
The show will be The Diane Rehm Show. I will be watching to find out how often women are guests. I already know the figures won't be good. That's established each Friday when she usually has four men and only two women as guests on her two hours.
The other big question is if I'm on Facebook? That rumor started awhile back and the answer was no. I have ten e-mails today asking about it and the answer is yes. I'll try to include a link tomorrow. I got on Facebook after I wrote my piece about Isaiah this week ("Isaiah"). Remember he started as the site's cartoon artist because he wanted to do his part. That made me think that maybe one of us with a community site should be on Facebook. So I started an account. It's not much. And I use the same illustration I do here. I know we're not a Facebook community but, for the record, I will friend anyone -- community or not -- that asks.
