Listening to NPR as I washed dishes on my day off from work, I did a double take. The voice announced that the Office of Homeland Security is a sponsor of All Things Considered. Why does the Office of Homeland Security need to advertise? This particular sponsorship erodes my willingness to accept that All Things Considered actually does have any objectivity. It's just another mouthpiece for the military/industrial complex. Okay, back to the dishes.
