    Wright Thompson gets lots of love here for his writing and reporting (all of it deserved), but who knew he had such a deep, soulful voice? He narrates this four-minute clip (I bet he wrote it, too). You can hear the joy in his voice at the end. Just beautiful.

    He did write it too (it's appeared on the journo board) and it's longer than four minutes to read.

    Dang it, I had a hunch it would already be here, but couldn't find it!
    Oh well, I love it so much it deserves a second posting :)

    (Actually, my post refers to his youtube video, which apparently is a very short and updated version of his article that appeared last month.)

    Naw, not accusing you of a full-blown d_b ... only a partial one. :D

    Wright does a great job with his E:60 pieces. This one, and the one about noodling I referenced on the other thread.
