Ann -- I tried to put a comment on the Audible Althouse site, but it seems to have eaten it!

Summation: Pissy is good, and a good cast it was!

Ann Althouse said...

Thanks. I should just turn off the comments over there. It's much better to have them here.

To paraphrase Carly Simon: "You're so mean, you probably think this comment is about you..."

Actually, I listened to about the first twenty minutes of the podcast before hitting the sack last night. You didn't sound especially mean to me.

Good stuff...interesting to hear the intonations you intend in your writing.

One of the things I try to do on my blog, is give people a sense of the emphases I desire to make in my written words through the use of italics and bold lettering. I always read what I write out loud before publishing it. Maybe podcasting is a good back-up for bloggers.

Like Ron, I've tried to leave comments at the audible site, but have been unable to do so.

I really enjoyed most, out of all that I enjoyed, your talk on The Supreme Court. Being simplistic however, my favorite line of the show was hearing, while visualizing, Cindy Sheehan waking up in love with, after dreaming of, President Bush. God Help You Laura!
I'm sorry to hear of the recording production problems. It was worth it in the end. I'll be first to say it, you are like a Fireside Chat, pissy or not, and that's good. Thank you.

One thing I'd add about the BBC is that whether it has "insidious anti-american bias" or not (Tony Blair seems to think so), the quality of news reporting at the BBC has been in freefall for a long time. I remember growing up watching the 6 O'Clock news with my parents for years, and the quality was pretty good. Then I went to University, didn't watch television for probably two years, and by the time I started again, wondered what the heck had happened to the beeb in the intervening period. Their reporting these days seems sketchy, brief and terribly ephemeral.

Of course, when I moved to America, I realized just how vacuous television news is over here, period, but fortunately, by that time, the internet was becoming a viable alternative primary source for news.

BTW, what did Scalia say about the judicial demeanor vs. being a LawProf?

Ann Althouse said...

Simon: I asked him (during a lunch) whether it isn’t better to be a law professor, because there is so much more room for self expression; judges seem to be so constrained in what they can say when they come to speak. I also said that he seemed to be more expressive than most judges. Justice Scalia said he had no problem being expressive as a judge because of his theory of originalism. The others, he implied, cannot stick their neck out because they lack a coherent theory; he’s so sure of what he believes in, that frees him to speak expansively.

Simon said...

That's one of the reasons I admire him. You'll never heard Nino described as "reticent." :)
