Why I might not donate to my local NPR station and other chatter

Thank you


2011 Coverage

News from MyWHaT underwriters, Carter’s Compost and Einstein Cycles, is that all awesome people are invited to the Civic Center this Sunday for the 2nd annual cyclecross event.

Kids races begin at 12:30, followed adult races. Word is, bring cow bells and compost bucket lids to make some noise.

This week our local NPR affiliate Interlochen Public Radio has been running another pledge drive.  I was considering giving, but than I thought, does having an entertaining, interesting, and informative public radio station induce more driving? Does it make the 30 minute commute from Empire to TC too comfortable? What about the extra block or two to simply listen to the end of a segment? And, we’ve all sat in the driveway with the car running to finish a segment–What’s the impact of those emissions? Give at your own risk, I say (IPR).

    IPR is a valuable source of news to me @ home and at work. Not just in my car.

    Also you can pull the car in and turn it off but still listen. Just don’t turn the key all the way back. It really doesn’t take much battery power to run the radio.

    NPR helps me cook and clean. In the car I am too busy texting/Facebooking/reading blogs to listen.
