The Lessons of Haggis
To conclude our week’s worth of all-time great reads, selected by John Simopoulos, Dean of Degrees at St Catherine’s College, Oxford, we end on a note of sublime levity: today’s’s featured author is Beachcomber (J.B. Morton) – an English columnist and essayist of exquisite humour… “and I can say that with the authority of one who prefers his own jokes to other people’s” says John. Beachcomber: The Works of J.B.Morton is a good place to a start your enjoyment of this wonderful author.
In today’s Write Report, Donna reports that Colombian coffee growers have no sense of humour when it comes to satire… they plan on suing “Mother Goose & Grimm” cartoonist Mike Peters “for damage and harm, detriment to intellectual property and defamation.” As if satirical cartoonists are the main problem in Colombia… And ads in books – not new, and rarely welcome – is this the way to bail out the publishing industry?
We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
