NPR story on the idea of using ADR in the real estate foreclosures crisis. Ah, the power of ADR.

I have yet to eat the McRib during its limited availability. Sigh. I vaguely remembered that the McRib was pretty tasty, but a big sandwich. Probably more sensible than, say, the McPizza (which never really hit it big nationally) or the little itty bitty McDonuts (Times Sq. McDonald’s had them – they were cute and tasty, but not very McDonald’s-ish). Hilarious NPR airing about the McRib…
NPR Pop Culture blog podcast – talking about comic books. I’ve become very into reading the graphic novels (trade compilations, that is) of Batman, so this was pretty entertaining a listen.
