A Fine Corrective
I wonder if there is any chance of putting Sylvia Poggioli in charge of NPR. I often find her reports to embody what is so often lacking in other NPR features: research, historical context, nuance, etc. Today she presents on Pope Benedict XVI's anti-Islam remarks (see my post below on yesterday's coverage). Not only does she examine the fuller implications of his whole speech, she also did some research into the history of this pope's attitudes and actions regarding relations with Islam. Kudos to Poggioli!
