Insult to Injury
I switched on NPR as I turned out of the driveway, hoping to distract myself with the morning's news. After a story on the Chilean miners rescue and another about people losing their jobs and homes in the Gulf, I was starting to get my life back into perspective. I mean really, what's one bumpy morning compared to people who are really struggling to stay alive or buy food for their families?
And then, just as I was pulling myself together, BAM!
Frickin pledge drive.
C'mon, NPR. It's not nice to kick a girl when she's down -- and then ask her for money, too.
For the record, I love NPR. I just really hate the pledge drive.
