What kind of horrible dystopian future are we headed to, where National Public Radio depends on government funding to stay on the air? THE MIND REELS.

I actually think the National Sherif’s Association crack is the right one.

They are looking to hire 1,500 linguists, mathematicians, electrical engineers and intelligence analysts by September. So I’m not surprised that they are supporting NPR, since this gives them access to their target audience.

News Release: National Security Agency To Hire 1,500 People by September 2004

NPR and other radio stations typically have a deal with one of two centralized traffic reporting companies which offer traffic reports for “free” in exchange for the ability to sell sponsorships during their traffic reports. It’s a big business, run efficiently.

I mean it is obvious that the National Sherrif’s Association sponsors Metro Network’s traffic report, not NSA/CSS. I have a brother that works for Westwood One.
