Oh, woe.

Possibly the greatest regret in my life was missing your show the last time you were in Portland, (Maine, of course). I missed my big bigly chance!

I had foot surgery and couldn’t make the show with your request, MY FLASHING SCHOOL CROSSING GUARD SIGN! It was an opportunity I wish I could have hobbled to! I stay up nights imagining what could have been. Sigh.

I’m a dedicated fan of many years. I love your show!! I’m up in Camden now. They do not have crossing guards. I so hope to meet with an appropriate prop someday. Thank you for the fun!

Remember when Liberals were the open minded ones?

Remember when Liberals were the open minded ones?

Remember when values like tolerance, objectivity, curiosity and a love for one’s fellow man were espoused by people like Hodgman and Ira Glass and others in the media?

If you want to understand how people like Hodgman and shows like this one, This American Life, and pretty much all of mainstream journalism became completely insane, hateful, radical left-leaning revolutionary propaganda, there’s a good essay you should read.

It’s called “S u icid e of the Liberals” by Gary Saul Morson in First Things. So many parallels to the Russian Revolution.

don’t be like this guy and give into the madness. Stay strong and speak up against people like JJHO, who are either downright evil or deeply misguided and lacking in self awareness. Either way, the result is the same.
