“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Cat Haters need not apply
Wednesday, May 13, 2009

We all use litmus tests of some kind or another. My mom has one of the funniest: There are two kinds of people in the world -- cat lovers and assholes.

Here's one I have found to be almost 100-percent true over the years: I enjoy the company of people who listen to National Public Radio for news. They tend to be curious, open-minded and global in their perspective.

Agree on the cats...but what about those of us who listen to NPR, and laugh derisively at half their reporters??

I used to listen to NPR, till it put me into a sleep-induce para-coma, and I almost drove off the road into a ditch. No more boring NPR for me now.

geekyHeather: Yeah, I agree, they take themselves SO SERIOUSLY!
Especially Sylvia in Italy. I do like Don in the White House, though: he's real straight-forward and chatty; you can tell he's a Michigan native who used to cover Detroit and the auto industry for NPR.

Scott: You MUST take your NPR every day as prescribed ... whether you want to or not. It's anti-stupid medicine. If you don't listen to NPR then you MUST read a newspaper or The Economist.
Yours in health,
Dr. Ad

Hey, hey, hey, now! What about dog lovers? I don't think we're all...what your (very cool) mom said! Take it back, Ad!

Those who love animals love life. Dog, cat or gerbil. Even other humans!

Relax, dear Kathy ... I think my mom's standard is a comment on people who hate cats, not those who love dogs. Obviously, you can love both.

I myself would have a dog if:
They didn't stink.
They peed and pooped in a box.
They didn't bark.
They had a more interesting, obstinate personality.
