I know I’m a little late to do this, but thank goodness for Air America Radio. Unfortunately, it’s a RealAudio stream, so I can’t listen to it with iTunes. For users of Mac OS X 10.1.5 or higher, try Air America Receiver 1.0. You will need RealOne Player, too.
To celebrate Air America hitting the airwaves, I sent the following email:
Dear Air America:
First of all, let me just say that I am already a devoted Air America Radio listener, having spent way too much time in the wee hours of this morning attempting to wrangle the Real Audio Player into submission. Anything that involves that much effort ensures my lifelong devotion, if only out of sheer stubbornness. But the programming is good, too.
Secondly, I wanted to call your attention to what I consider a hilarious prank at Ann Coulter’s expense via Amazon.com. The online journaling site LiveJournal has a community called “liberal”; in it, one of the members posted a plea for prank participation, linked to here:
Here is a quote from this post: “If 21 of you do this, then Amazon users looking up the hardcover edition of Ann Coulter’s Slander will find that the #1 book recommended as additional reading is Deborah Addington’s A Hand in the Bush: The Fine Art of Vaginal Fisting.”
One hundred and three recommendations later, I only wish I had thought of it myself. I am attaching a screenshot.
