As a consolation prize to my friends who will be disconsolate about not getting to live in a post-apocalyptic future, I offer the thought that Rush Limbaugh and other talk radio hosts may be losing their audiences. No, wait, sorry - it's just that people are turning to podcasts, or tuning in to local hosts. Interest in Al Franken's show does seem to be increasing, though he has a way to go before he's competitive with El Rushbo.
UPDATE Mitch Berg of the Northern Alliance Radio Network, a longtime radio pro, has some comments and context that the Strib article doesn't supply.
Speaking of the apocalypse, Professor Death comments on a couple of news articles concerning public and private teps being taken to prep for the possible avian-flu pandemic.
