Dear GK, You've tapered off
April 12, 2004 |
You've tapered off on political satire lately, which I find disappointing. Have you become a Republican? Or has NPR threatened you with expulsion if you continue to irk the Powers That Be?
I just finished writing a political book, HOMEGROWN DEMOCRAT, which comes out in May or June and which says what I care to say about politics, and having written the book, I don't feel the need to go down that same road on the radio. Anybody who wants to know what I think can lean up against a bookstore counter and read a few pages and get the idea. For the radio show, I'm more interested in stories than satire.
