The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
I agree with you about podcasts to the extent that I have only listened to one. And it was one by InstaPundit, at that. And I don't much care for the video clips, such as Malkin's Vent, either. But I'm a geezer, who was in high school when I saw my first TV; and that was on about a 5" screen. I think the world has galloped by, leaving me in the dust. I guess I'm out of step because I can still enjoy reading.
I concur on podcasts. I can read a heck of a lot faster than people can speak.
