But I digress. The real reason I hate NPR is that they're so blindingly clueless in the face of the obvious. A brilliant example of this came up last Tuesday when I was driving home to dinner, and, uncharacteristically, flipped the radio to KCRW. One of NPR's fallopian mafia was interviewing a sleep researcher about sleep deprivation in teenagers and the new later school day in Minneapolis. He said that he never turned down a request to give talks to high schools. Inevitably, when he did speak, which was typically in the early mornings, he would quickly be speaking to a roomful of zombies.
This he attributed to sleep deprivation on the part of the students.
Or he's a dull speaker... but that never crossed the NPR interviewer's little mind, 'cause she sure didn't ask him about it. Like I said, the obvious evades them.
