NPR Priorities.

I woke up early this morning, and while getting ready for work I watched the solemn majesty of the funeral of His Holiness John Paul II. Clearly this was an event for the ages - a huge gathering of the faithful and the world's religious and political leaders. I found funeral coverage across the AM radio dial as well. Clearly this was news. I then thought: NPR must be providing some excellent coverage too; I mean, they're the serious radio network, right? Alas, a quick roll of the tuner over to the local NPR affliate gave me the typical ersatz news of Morning Edition: a seemingly endless piece on a new education program to teach kids to read using comic books...
