OK, when Karen bought her car she got six months free of satellite radio. Philosophically speaking, Karen is against the whole idea of "paying" for radio.
"What does this do to local radio?" Karen asked me. "How would we listen to Astros games without local radio?"
This isn't an issue that concerns me all too much. I only ride in a car every couple of weeks or so. I watch the Astros on television at home.
Furthermore, all Karen knew about satellite radio was it made Howard Stern a very wealthy man. Karen is against everything and anything affiliated with Howard Stern. Let me say it this way: Karen is accepting of Rush Limbaugh, despite disagreeing with about 99 percent of everything he says. She even occasionally will listen to his take, just for the purpose of hearing another side. It all goes back to "I may not agree with what you say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it" (Voltaire).
Unless, that is, you are Howard Stern. Karen believes since Stern contributes NOTHING to the good of America, he should be strung up and eaten by wild dogs.
Anyway, dignity and concern for common man-- radio guys working hard in the local market-- and her puritanical philosophical disagreement with Stern has now gone to the wayside.
Karen discovered E Street Radio.
AKA all Bruce Springsteen all day, all the time.
Please remember satellite doesn't have commercial interruptions.
Karen told me she hears "Thunder Road" every time she gets into the car.
This is a sad state of affairs.
Anyway our song today, which Karen likes and I approve:
"Human Touch" (Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band)
I am the Elizabeth Taylor of the feline world.
