Can any good thing come from NPR?

On NPR this morning, not one but two good stories back to back!

The first one was an interview with George Ayittey, a professor of economics at American University, who said what Africa needs isn't mysterious: it needs honest capitalism (i.e., more market economics and less kleptocracy).

Then, an item on pain -management that offers hope. (Pain-management is the key, underlying issue to a lot of the euthanasia debate, and a justice issue: if our laws and law-enforcement regimen interferes with pain-management and comfort-care, that is unjust. Something our bishops ought to take a look at.)

Add in a story on "union wars" in West Virginia, told from the usual, top-down, quasi-Marxist perspective, but nonetheless didn't completely whitewash union thuggery...not bad for National Proletarian Radio.
