Jed, I agree with your point below. But this gives me an occasion to express my bafflement over the President’s radio address. In my few years, never once have I been surfing the radio dial on a Saturday and found the President opining. Maybe some older (by older, I mean that Reagan was president when I was born) AmSpecBloggers can shed some light: was the President’s radio address once regularly and widely broadcast? Is this an anarchronism, now only useful for slow-news weekends and sound-bite excerpts?
