Brian Lehrer Weekend

Saturday, January 25, 2014 - 08:00 AM

We're trying something new on the Brian Lehrer Show -- three of our favorite segments from the week, edited together to listen to on the weekend, in case you missed them. The NSA segment is first; the segment on dangerous intersections begins at 22:45; and the call-in on illness blogs begins at 52:00. If you don't subscribe to the Brian Lehrer Show on iTunes, you can do that here.

Did you say NOISE?? Tuesday??? I am looking forward to that.
My office is in the front of the house on a quiet street in Brooklyn and is very often plagued by the deep, throbbing roar of the Fresh Direct truck's ThermoKing cooler on its van. Clearly audible and vibrating from 200 feet away on the street, this unnecessary mechanical noise (is it a deliberate form of advertising?) needs to be addressed. It is a basic engineering problem, nothing too complicated.
Don't get me wrong. I love Fresh Direct. But I don't need them shaking up my office to remind me of their availability.

SNOW..... it's the same in Washington DC.... as a student there, I observed that a few inches = pandemonium.... as Brian mentioned.... no sense in making the major investment for such limited return on use...

My wife and I had the honor and pleasure of talking for a quarter hour to Pete Seeger shortly after we were married. He asked us, if we had children, to sing to them every day. He said that, as he grew old, one of his greatest concerns was that traditional lullabies were dying out, and that generally, the bond created within families by singing together was evaporating.
If you want to honor Pete Seeger's memory, sing to and with your younger relatives.
