I was a contributor to All Things Considered, and Weekend Edition Saturday for about 25 years, and did lots of other radio things too. That is a long time to work in a competitive and political environment without participating in alliances, plots, coups, and relationships of convenience. At last someone rose to a certain level who either didn't like me, or needed to sacrifice a popular broadcaster to demonstrate power, or both. So they stopped using my stuff. I can't complain--it was lots of fun.
