No. It's wonderful.

Not long ago Mr. Marshall was given a fairly positive portrait in a TV movie (whose name escapes me). Does his reputation in Hollywood match this genial, equanimous image?

Adam: Unfortunately I do not feel the same way as you - I find it extremely interesting and insightful - I like the British accent.

My observation is that you probably don't care about history or cultures.

My only peeve is that we don't get the news headlines at the top of the hour!

Can you ask Garry to retell the story of the "small spoon" on the Dick Van Dyke Show? As a student of television and film it was very insightful.

I know this is off topic, but I can't find a place to comment on the "History of the World in 100 Objects" series. Each day when this series airs at 1pm I immediately turn down or off my radio. The subject matter is absurd and the narrator's voice is unbearable. I simply cannot listen to this person ramble on and speculate on what the meaning of artifacts are, and his voice is so irritating that I can't tune it out.
Does anyone else feel this way?
