Who says that? Because this post about why they had to change this week’s Blogger On Duty is funny. Not only are both Steve Inskeep and Scott Simon on jury duty this weeek, but no one else was available, either:
What made matters worse is that everyone approached by NPR’s management was unavailable. Bill Jefferson was busy cleaning out his freezer. Harry Reid was at some boxing match. Lou Dobbs was redoing the fence outside of his house — and extending it to somewhere near the Mexican border. Kiefer Sutherland was on a vacation cruise to Shanghai.
Snerk. Ken Rudin is quite fine, and quite funny, as this week’s blog host. I tend to prefer JJ Sutherland, but he’s not always available (such as now).
