better late than never
....and this is very late, i apologise. I could give you the usual guff about meetings i had to go to , the fact that rage Boy is ill and he is on the "early" shift ( for Jimmy's admirers don't worry- he's lost his voice after coming back from holiday so i think he'll pull through), i'm off to South Africa tomorrow etc etc but it's still not on.
Mind you, it wasn't a great start to the day when i got sent an "article" written about our programme in a magazine called "Current". , though for some reason the piece isn't available online....
or on Jim Russell's own site where he calls himself "the Program Doctor " so i can't link you to it, but i'll ask Anu to send it out on the daily e-mail. I won't do what he does either, which is to be very selective about the material i use so i won't quote from the piece, but suffice to say you know where the article is going when we get a reference to Jerry Springer in the first few pars. I'm so glad Ros and the team spent so much time and effort copying cds and giving interviews, only for the good "doctor" to write the article he was going to write anyway. To be fair to Mr Russell , he did say in an e-mail to me that the headline : "BBC's World Have Your Say : not every worthy experiment works" was not his and he didn't like it. Read the article and let us know whether you think the show you listen to is the same one he describes.
Right, the "atheism" debate mentioned yesterday is going well, and you're doing a good job of forcing it on the agenda, as are readers of the Guardian here .
Do you think the world should make "parenting" classes compulsory - not just for Britney ?
Another blow for press freedom in Egypt ?
and what chance Korean re-unification ?
