I agree generally with your assessment of Salk; he seems a fairly shallow fellow. However, he did have a moment in the sun, I thought, telling people in effect to get over the David Ortiz expletive. As I said elsewhere, they train young men to drop fire on people but won't let them right 'fuck' on the aeroplanes because it's obscene. Or something.


Also, I note that John (I'm John Rich) Rich is leaving the radio team today.


And I happened upon this odd thing:
