It was something that no other radio talk-show host could pull off--here, anywhere.
It was sitting down, noshing at the deli, radio. It was both funny, at times poignant (Savage played a tape of him interacting with his late mother;-- an inspired, compelling masterpiece and I use those words with a hundred percent conviction).
God knows I'm a frequent critic of the various tripe I hear and see on a daily basis in this so-called area of sophistication and tolerance --so when I'm an ardent advocate don't do off the deep end and make absurd inferences --I'm a big fan, yes, so sue me if you can't take it.
*The almost daily miscues, mistakes, screen grab graffiti that constitutes KTVU (Fox2) would be preposterous by anyone's standards --but sadly is the norm at 2 Jack London Square, house of the 510 area code prima donna society.
*I don't believe in advocacy journalism --no matter how worthy the cause--the Chronicle's Homeless series is getting predictable buzz, like the LA Times, for instance.
Last time I checked news is reported --institutions its job it is to report the news shouldn't be in the business of making news, however noble it is running several pieces on the behemoth tragedy of Homelessness in San Francisco.
The problem, by the way, isn't going away because of news articles. But thanks anyway.
