Red Mass

It's October 1st which means it's another season for the Supreme Court. And this year there's a bumper crop of interesting cases from 2nd Amendment Issues (Washing DC's law) to Gitmo Detainee Rights (habeous are we back to corpus). But the major thing about a new season means that Nina Totenberg will be getting more air time on NPR. Yippie!

Edit I forgot that many years ago the Car Talk guys did a joke about NPR premiums for membership and did a gag about The Nina Totin' Bag. And now you can buy one. Life imitates art.

LOL! I haven't listened to much NPR since I gave up the commute. I did very much enjoy Ms. Totenberg's coverage.

And Car Talk is the most fun one can have listening to the radio.

Car Talk is certainly a lot of fun. I also love Nina's very dry (and sometimes wry) description of the law and legal events. Her renditions of Supreme Court oral arguments are excellent.

Car talk and Nina are the principle reasons I listen to NPR.

Jim, they certainly make my day (and Saturday). Although I also like Cokie Roberts Monday Morning weekend talking-head round-up.
