KQED (the radio station) has its winter pledge drive going…

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

KQED (the radio station) has its winter pledge drive going right now. I keep turning on the radio in the mornings, hearing the pledge drive, and turning off the radio. In a way, I don't really have to check the news if KQuodEratDemonstrandum still has its guilt-exhortations on, because I trust that if there occurred a large-scale disaster about which I should know, KQED would cut its fundraising short and switch to live news. As I told Zack, now you know whom I trust: myself, my friends, public radio, and the internet.

I keep typing "KQUED" and having to correct it.
