I’ve got a couple of subcontractors I get quotes from for various functions. There is one whose quotes end up all over compared to the actual costs we incur when we use them. Sometimes high, sometimes low, sometimes right on. Then there’s another sub whose quotes are always 10% lower than what we pay them. I prefer the second sub since I can adjust the quotes to what the actual cost is going to be.

The LA Times has a decent opinion column by their resident right-winger on NPR.

I agree much with his sentiments. I, too, can be counted on pretty regularly to cut the check to my local NPR station. I’m not quite so full of venom as Rob Long, though. While in no way would I call ATC or Morning Edition balanced, at least they have open and consistient bias while putting out somewhat deeper reporting and analysis than anywhere else on the radio. And I’ve never really developed a taste for regular FM jocks, or AM talk (with the exception of a certain harmless fuzzball for which I expect to catch crap).

NPR’s like the second contractor I use; consistiently biased, but useful.

Ha! Sign me up for the same sentiment… except I don’t care for Rush too much any more. He doesn’t seem to consider things – he just seems to figure out what the sold Right position would be on anything… then he defends it. Oh well.

Yeah, that’s how I feel about Rush, too. I miss the late ’80’s and early ’90’s on his show, back before he’d sold out to the Republican establishment. Heck, before the Regan Revolution had petered out to the Bush Backroom deals. The only reason that I still listen is that he does a pretty good job of breaking stories. But for that, I’m more and more going to The Corner.
