This week, <a href=”http://www.npr.org “_blank”>NPR’s Morning Edition</a> has launched a series called Crime in the City. So far, they’ve done pieces on Donna Leon’s Venice and John Burdett’s Bangkok. Still to come – Michael Connelly’s Los Angeles . . . and Laura Lippman’s Baltimore. Hence, the reference to the old <a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZIvgQ9ik48 “_blank”> “Sesame Street segment.</a> I’m always a little reluctant to give advance notice of a media thingie, as there are no guarantees; a huge news story can derail anything, even a series that has already launched. But, with that caveat, tune in Aug. 23 to hear me nattering inanely.
I just hope Noah Adams (lovely man) kept the part about how much I love Dogfish Head, which isn’t even local. But it’s a lot more local than National Bohemian these days.
We now return you to your regular programming, and I return to ANOTHER THING TO FALL. The end is near. In a good way.
