(And remember, no power means no computer access.)
The folks at NPR's Talk of the Nation were forced to rediscover pen and paper yesterday -- yikes! And mind you, that show must go on the air live.
As for the flood... that happened on NPR's third floor, home of TOTN. (And if I were still working there on the second floor, I probably would've taken a loooooong walk around the block, to avoid having flashbacks of my own flooding scare last summer.)
Still, there's a silver lining to it all. Producer Barry Hardymon says she had to pick up the -- *gasp!* -- hard copy of the New York Times, since she couldn't get online. And, she says, she found some pretty interesting stuff in the back of the paper. Which made me think, you know... we're all young and tech-savvy, but we shouldn't wait until there's a minor disaster to up pick reading material off the web.
Besides, we've gotta support Talia. :-) continue...
