Quote of the Day
I think we are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not.

Jean de La Fontaine

Even after they fired me, called me a bigot and publicly advised me to only share my thoughts with a psychiatrist, I did not call for defunding NPR. I am a journalist, and NPR is an important platform for journalism.
