New Yorker summary w Dan & Eric

1 Rave:
Even as a longtime subscriber, its enjoyable to hear highlights and opinions on latest issues. Sort of like book or classroom discussions.
2 Rants:
A.Too much time is given to opening banter. Stick w the contents; eliminate or reduce the personal chat.
B. Eric(?) speaks quickly and trails off toward the end of sentences. He has lots of good comments that I miss in his eager delivery.

Uninteresting. These two people should review People magazine.
