waiting on a corner

There was so much traffic today (this morning, inexplicably so; this evening, Dodgers game) that I did a great deal of waiting at corners in my car, watching other people wait at corners.  But unless something completely catastrophic occurs to swallow my day, I'm very grateful for the hour plus that I spend listening to NPR every day.  When I first moved to the US NPR seemed oddly formal after the BBC's combination of cut and thrust - the Today show - and user-friendly camaraderie (the rest), but now I've very much got used to its rhythms and conventions - although I can't work out why it doesn't sound more incredulous at the lunacy of the Republicans.
