for over a decade. I wait for his producer’s call every Monday morning,
never quite sure where we’re going to go.
We were wrapping up today’s show, talking about shows that jumped the shark, when I abruptly changed the subject tothe sentencing of Euna Lee and Laura Ling overnight to 12 years of hard labor by a North Korea court.
interrupted to say that Ling and Lee were “irresponsible” and had “put
300 million people … at risk” by daring to go anywhere near Kim
You know, there is no injustice to which people are subjected that radio talk show nutballs cannot explain away by smugly asserting that it was simple dumbassery that got them screwed over. I’m not even arguing the facts of this case, simply noticing the pattern: Something shitty happens, and clearly whatever it is, it’s the fault of the person it happened to.
I’m surprised somebody hasn’t suggested Lee and Ling sell some bling to buy their way out of prison.
