Wanna be depressed?

There is another radio show that I enjoy listening to, its called “This American Life”. No it is not nearly as idealized as it sounds, actually it has pretty liberal helpings of reality in each show; though I suppose you would have to listen to it to know what I mean. Not being in the US I have to record the shows and then listen to them as I have time. One of the ones I just finished listening to (I think it was a rebroadcast, but I recorded it 2004-12-03) talks about a lot of things but of course that which stuck in my memory was about “the middle of nowhere”, it was a sobering reminder of how civilizations can implode and of government insensitivities. If you wan to hear it go here.
