We’re driving through Chicago and see a billboard for 820 am! Progressive talk radio! SH immediately tunes to it.
SH: There’s nothing there! Where is it?
Me: I’m so surprised that there’s not a market for a whiney leftist east coast woman like Randi Rhoades in Chicago.
SH [rolls eyes and continues to tune]: Hey – what’s this?
...the theology of the body...
Me: It must be a Catholic station.
SH: How do you know?
Me: Catholic ESP.
...Relevant Radio, from the Diocese of Chicago...
Me: Told you.
SH: How can there be an entire radio station for Catholics in Chicago but no progressive radio?
Me [after long, slow consideration, thinking that this close to home, I don’t really want to have a political argument]: I have no idea.
The end of the line
