As a non-leftist, I am required to consider NPR’s left-leaning bias (and their government funding) as a mitigating factor against the quality of their programming. But their weekend shows generally allow me to put aside such considerations, and I routinely enjoy “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me” along with the subject of today’s news, “Car Talk.”
The light-hearted show, which mixes the occasioinal life lesson into callers’ questions about their vehicles, will be ceasing production, and airing only reruns — or shows created from clips of the over 1,200 episodes of Car Talk in their recorded library, sort of a perpetual “best of” series.
“Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers,” in real life Tom and Ray Magliozzi, are 74 and 63 years old, respectively, and I don’t blame them for hanging it up after a quarter century of entertaining us.
According to NPR, “The guys will also still write their twice weekly Dear Tom and Ray column, and put their feet in their mouths in surprising new ways on the web and Facebook. …”
Tom and Ray say they’ll spend their time being “even lazier,” a task for which I wish them much luck and enjoyment. They’ve earned it.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
