The faces of National Public Radio
Radio's a funny thing. Though we don't see those speaking, still our minds develop mental images based on what they sound like. And if you're a nerd like me, you listen to NPR. Sometimes they're infuriating, and often (contrary to the popular stereotype) painfully conservative. (I use "conservative" and "liberal" in the classic senses of the words rather than with the meaningless political definitions of our time). But NPR is usually good, seldom really bad, and occasionally it rises to greatness. And here are the faces with the voices. Check them out and be prepared to be surprised.
