Nature’s Way of Telling Us (We’re Assholes)

Air America Crashes

In case you hadn’t heard, Air America, the “progressive” talk radio network recently went silent. Having listened to it until recently, through two poorly-funded AM stations in Central Ohio that failed and having worked for a short period for one of them, it was obvious to me that the network was poorly run.
