Do you know how many remote control devices are in your house and how many buttons they total? Of course not. Not the remotest idea. Who could possible care? Well, Steve Post cares and has done the count. That's how he celebrated Valentine's Day. That and trying to remember whether the New Hampshire Senator's name is Gregg Judd, Judd Gregg, or Judge Dread. All seem wrong, somehow. In other business, Steve hosts Charles Darwin channeler and science writer, Richard Milner, just returned from his triumphal tour of America's college campuses where he presented his one-man show: "Charles Darwin - Alive and in Concert."
