On Darwin's list & "I thought he was more evolved": Well, he wrote that pretty early in his life, right? Maybe he evolved later.

Minority view -
I enjoyed that segment and reserved the book at my local library.
From reading it, I thought the title might be pronounced "You say to-MAHT-to , I say shut up"
The BL Show is great! The segments that annoy me are very few.
But Brian don't you usually put the light subjects in the last hour of the show?
Is it the funding raising throwing you off?

That's complete crock!!

It all depends on the economic status, and the situation of your marriage.
It also depends on "old fashioned" to "modern" women and men, and sex is NOT what it's all about,perhaps for those who have time on their hands....if you have a family, having $$$ and providing a decent meal for your children is of utmost importance, and who has time to read the New Yorker, REAlly Brian.

Why do the producers of this show insist on periodically airing this kind of annoying, moronic nonsense? If the contributors WNYC is attempting to attract this morning are persons who enjoy this drivel, then I'll no doubt be listening to (and supporting) BL less and less

Been with my girlfriend for 5 years... much longer than some marriages.... No plans on getting married soon.

These two are insufferable.

Annoying segment. Since BL is normally so good, these bad ones really stick out. Sorry for the bluntness. And how about a nod to the concept of gay marriage?

You Say Tomato - I say - gay New Yorkers still can't get married!?!?
Enjoy your ability to get married.
Equality for all!!!
