Good for you! No -- good for those of us who have used this as a resource!

Long post warning - sorry!

I found today's show a triple with three subjects I care deeply about: current political events via David B., American history (AKA past political events) via the fine book discussion, and the sad state of affairs in reading comprehension for adults. I've been thinking about the third subject a lot ...
