The path not taken

Today on the public radio show, To the Best of Our Knowledge, they asked the question, “What do you regret in your life?”

Thank you Bob Edwards

Almost everyday of my adult life, a clock radio has awakened me with the sounds of National Public Radio. One of my favorite parts of the day is spent lying in bed for a little while, listening to the best news and commentary in the media today. After 25 years, today was Bob Edwards last day as host of NPR’s Morning Edition. Listening to Bob’s authoritative and comforting style every morning was like hearing your father tell you about the events of the day. I also enjoyed the way in which he injected his wry sense of humor into Morning Edition — a unique and welcome trait that other hosts and news anchors often do not share.

Thank you for waking me up and filling me in, Bob. Good luck with the next phase of your career.
