TALKSHOW: KQED radio announced a few days ago that due to lack of funding, it was canceling its Perspectives commentaries. Next morning, Doug Edwards was checking the call-in tape for listener reaction and came across this from a women on her car phone: "My name is Julia. Longtime listener. I'm very upset that you're canceling Perspectives and I'm considering canceling my support. Please reinstate --," followed by the sound of squealing brakes, a crash, shattering glass, and Julia yelling "Oh s..., you've made me so mad I just rear-ended the f...er in front of me. Have to go now." Click. Poor Julia. Funds were restored, and Perspectives is back on the air.
