And Also: I went to a "talk to artists" sort of event (Liberal Arts) hosted by Katherine Lanphur at Barnes & Nobles yesterday. It was enjoyable, the author an especially amusing sort. KL was a co-host of the Al Franken Show, but was among the Air America departures in the last year or so, most recently Janeane Garofalo. I'm less a fan of JG, but overall, these departures (generally women, though Mark Maron also left, except for a small role) had negative effects. They served a valuable balance to the hosts, who honestly are a bit hard to take straight. Anyway, it was nice to see KL in person, and hear her infective laugh (and curse ... women cursing can be very appealing).
