I always try to set aside the time on Sunday to listen to your radio program. It’s my favorite on KSCO. Thank you.
Thanks. Keep the flattery coming; it’s my form of payment. If you will forward my blog to your friends. Thanks.
Thank you for taking my call today and for the referral to your writing, “Immigrants”. I’ll look forward to seeing it posted and to reading it. The little bit I heard of it on the air was exceptional. Please contact me offline re: the Carmel River discussion.
Keep up the great work on your wonderful show.
Hi, MIke. The story is posted. I am sorry it took so long. I lost my Internet connection (probably because of my bad attitude).
Don’t be shy if you ever want to become my agent.
Hi I have a question about archetecture. Does the type of complex things like the exploratorium in San Francisco and other things good is that from San Francisco or Paris.
I don’t understand the question. Try again, please.
In a answer to your opening statements about Israel I wanted to ask you if the U.S. did anything right about dealing with Ariel Sharon like did they force the execution and sequestering of Yasir Arifact.
Hi, Ardis. I don’t know the answer because I don’t think Arafat was “sequestered.” He led a dangerous end of life life under Israeli guns and under the threat of assassination by both Israelis and other Palestinians. The more interesting question for me is : Why was he sent to die without dignity, in a foreign land. Why in a French hospital, specifically, why in a French military hospital? Think about it. What is it that you can count on the French to be discreet about? What is the advantage to anyone of having doctors under military discipline help a politician die? Wouldn’t civilian doctors have done just as well? Wouldn’t civilian Palestinian doctors have done just as well? Use the brain God gave you.
Jacques, I am very sorry to hear that you are no longer on the radio. I always looked forward to hearing your low, sexy, and very French voice articulating a European perspective with right-on-the-money topics and conclusions. As a Dutch girl from colonial Batavia (Jakarta), immigrating to this country as a little girl, and haven lived in Germany 7 years, I sorely miss the foreign perspectives relative to current affairs. Best wishes with your health. –Ellen–
Sorry, Ellen. Life goes on. I would rather write more.
PS Your message should almost be x-rated
The demise of your radio show is quite disappointing given all the years I have listened and spoken to you. It is like the loss of a favorite car that no longer can run. I just spoke to the two liberal duffuses who have replaced your time slot and, although I am not a religious man, pray for a miraculous return (as well as a speedy recovery). I just noticed the “register” hyperlink which I will do.
Thanks for the great Sundays of listening to your wisdom. Tom Dominy, Oak Hills (North Monterey County).
Tom: Thanks for the kind words but there was no demise really. I just decided to leave the ocean after a good wave. Since I quit, I have had enough expressions of regret like yours to make me think again. Perhaps, I will try anew, perhaps with a different format if KSCO is game. Yet, to tell the truth, I am more interested in the kind of stories and essays that I post on my blog, for example than I am in the top off the head political commentary I did on radio. Mostly, I like telling stories.
I have not listened to my replacement because when life goes on, life goes on. Nevertheless, I am glad that you think they are liberal duffuses. Sure, I hate myself for this pettiness. Oh, how I hate myself!
Please get back on the radio. I was very sick and unable to listen to your show for 4 months. The first Sunday I was out of the hospital I tuned in to listen and you weren’t there. I worried you might have passed away. Man up and get back on the radio. I learned from you and want to know more. Please. I miss your show. You can do it. Your radio show is my all time favorite. I hope you are not in any pain. I hope you get well. I miss your show.
Hi, Robert. Thanks for the flattery. If anything will work with me, that’s it! I had pneumonia in June. I am completely OK now. I have no plan to pass away for the moment. The illness simply caused me to reconsider my priorities. I like radio but I like writing even more. Preparing my show took a surprising amount of time. So, I made a choice. I am glad you are well yourself. I hope you visit my blog often.
Thanks for responding. I receive your posts via email and I have some catching up to do. I found a lot of them waiting for me when I came home from the hospital. After I’m done reading all of them I’m going to visit your website and start reading the others from the beginning to the end.
I feel I learned from you. You helped me develop some critical thinking skills and logic. I had influential teachers in high school and in my on and off college days but You have been the most important to me and I have a lot of respect for you. I am better at taking in what I read in the newspaper and from the news on tv or the radio because of you. I can explain my views better because of you.
I really wish I had discovered your show earlier than I did in the fall of 2009. I owe you so much and I’m going to miss your show.
Is there an archive some where that I can access to hear the ones I missed?
Thank you very much.
Thanks, Robert. You made my day. If I had wanted to write a self-flattery, I would not have done better than you did.
