->We've got a great show for you today... But first, I've got a bone to pick with you all, my fellow public radio listeners. [=NPR=] News recently did a survey of their listeners' favorite beach reading. Y'know, lighter fare for summertime, mindless stuff. Among the finalists submitted by NPR listeners: ''Literature/TheBrothersKaramazov'' and that perennial guilty pleasure, ''WarAndPeace''. Now look, you're my peeps, and nobody else is listening: '''c'mon guys!''' Haven't we had enough sand kicked in our faces? I thought we agreed to keep this quiet! Remember, anybody asks, you love Danielle Steele, and please cover up your copy of Immanuel Kant's Critique of Practical Reason with the Us Weekly we gave you. Okay?

'''Creator/JimJarmusch''': ''I donít know, man. Once I was in a working-class restaurant in Rome with Creator/RobertoBenigni at lunchtime. They had long tables where you sit with other people. We sat down with these people in their blue work overalls, they were working in the street outside, and Robertoís talking to them, and talking about [[Literature/TheDivineComedy Dante]] and [[Literature/OrlandoFurioso Ariosto]] and twentieth-century Italian poets. Now, you go out to [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] Wyoming and go in a bar and mention the word poetry, and youíll get a gun stuck up your ass. [[SmallReferencePools Thatís the way America is]]. Whereas even guys who work in the street collecting garbage in Paris love nineteenth-century painting.''

-> '''Jonathan Rosenbaum''': ''In a recent essay about [[ViewersAreMorons the dumbing down of American movies]], Phillip Lopate writes, ďTake Jim Jarmusch: a very gifted, intelligent filmmaker, who studied poetry at Columbia, yet he makes movie after movie about low-lifes who get smashed every night, make pilgrimages to Memphis where they are visited by Elvisís ghost, shoot off guns and in general comport themselves in a somnambulistic, inarticulate, unconscious manner.Ē''\\
