In terms of music, I agree with Duke Ellington: There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind. I think that goes with all art. Outsider art is often good art made by someone not in the right club.

If someone tells me they're presenting outsider art, it doesn't offend me. It tells me that they're sharing something with me that I won't find coming from the either the pop-culture or academic factories. It's clumsy shorthand but it can be useful clumsy shorthand.

Picking up on the categories-talk in this growing age of big databases. Categories don't scale well at all. Talking math, here .

I stopped contributing to out local NPR station years ago when my son was young. He would come home from kindergarten and listened to a kids show they had. I used to record it for him. During a fund drive, they said "If we don't get x dollars in the next half hour, we won't be able to have the show." My son started crying. I thought "screw this."

When my Local NPR station got rid of a show called "Mambo Express", I looked up the DJ in the Chicago phone book, called him and asked what happened to his show. He was glad to hear that peopl were missing his show. I think his show is now on a suburban college station.

I like "This American Life" with Ira Glass, and that their news occasionally does things like exposing David Barton's latest book as full of fallacies, but there is not much more NPR for me. I wish there were another station to get all of the music shows that NPR keeps getting rid of.

the WSJ had some good writers before murdoch took it over. now many of them are with bloomberg news or the NYT, and factual stories carry a greater slant. and the editorial page, already thuggish, has become as trollish as the rest of the news corp empire.

Everyone who subscribes to WSJ in my neighborhood leaves them sitting on the porch, sidewalk until they start to rot in the plastic. Which is pretty much where it belongs.

Avatar Fri. 2/28/14 11:36am Alex In Illinois:

When Pacifica first appeared on the scene, it was refreshing to have something that was the polar opposite of all of the right wing junk, and not afraid to air what NPR was too afraid to air. I am not sure how reliable my memory is, but I thought I heard an interview on Pacifica a few weeks BEFORE 9/11/2001 about an attack by al Queda likely to occur and how President Bush should be preparing for such a possibility
