Dear Air America Radio

I'm a very big fan of the pinch-hitting that's been going on at your network these past couple of weeks -- first, Rachel Maddow's outstanding guest stints on the Al Franken show and the Majority Report over the last two heartrending weeks. And now, OpTruth's Paul Rieckhoff and GNN's Anthony Lappé are taking over for Mike Malloy. (Temporarily.) It was great to hear Rachel at a normal human hour, and to give her the chance to stretch out, develop ideas, and interview people -- and frankly, Rachel's voice was frequently the only thing keeping me from trepanning myself with the corner of my desk. And giving Paul and Anthony the opportunity to develop new programming for you is a terrific idea, one that's long-overdue.
Okay, in the spirit of constructive criticism, let's just say that I'm glad you've got such talent in your bullpen, because some of your starters are getting a little tired.
I'm just saying.
Anyway, if it's not too late in your timezone, you should really tune in to Paul and Anthony. They will be back Tuesday night as well. Of course, if you missed it, you can catch the podcast (when it goes up) here or here (second link requires iTunes 5.0).
