... or are you just glad to see me?

Wouldn't start the morning without NPR, but ... do you get the idea that there are some topics on which NPR's coverage is occasionally less reliable than others?

Correction: In some versions of this interview, we said N.Y. Giants player Plaxico Burress had shot himself with a "40-millimeter Glock." We should have said .40-caliber.

With tnx to Regret the Error, another high-priority stop on the daily rounds.

Har - I claim partial credit on this. I heard the interview as I was driving home and immediately hit the website to send them a note: "It's in the stylebook, ya mo-ron . . ."

Double unpoints to the "reporter" for apparently being metric-illiterate as well, else he would have realized that 40mm is freakin' huge.

Yah, you were sort of the first person I thought of when I saw this. Further comment withheld to protect the guilty and those who seek to absorb the stylebook by osmosis...

Oh, bummer, now I'm sorry I made fun of the folks at NPR. Looks like a round of layoffs for them this afternoon including some high-profile types.

Curiously, I read recently in the Journal of Philanthropy (Hi Todd) that they were doing well this year.

Everybody's laying off to save money, but (maybe not for NPR) those who get laid off won't be spending any money so the companies doing the laying off won't have any customers...

I really thought the Kroc gift was going to proof against this sort of thing. Guess not.

I hope the victims are first to get a call when things turn rosy again and NPR is hiring. But I've hoped that on behalf of lots of places, and the year still isn't over. Sheez.

I'm really bummed that Farai Chideya is being axed along along with her show "News and Notes" which was aimed at the black community. I listen to it on WNCU most evenings when WUNC and NPR are in their "cute" segment after 6 p.m.

On Fridays she would do a conference call with several black bloggers and journalists, it was always informative. It was a great window into the community and what other folks were thinking and talking about. I am going to miss it.

I hope she ends up with Tavis Smiley or Juan Williams on their syndicated shows.
