Listener’s Notebook, July 1996
of the SW community, we have a monster on our hands. Or at least I do. It’s called the Internet, and it’s so crammed with, er, stuff of all sorts that it’s darned near overwhelming. I’ve never waded through so much info to assemble a column as I’ve done this month. This in itself wouldn’t be so bad, but for every net posting containing useful data, there are fifty about how the Antichrist has a show on WWCR and “where can I get a decent shortwave radio for $39.95?”
Why do I continue to wrestle with this nuttiness every month? Beats me. Must be some kind of Zen thing, a self-imposed trial at the end of which I’ll have this big revelation or something.
Hmmm. Maybe not. But that’s the wonder of it all. As the Zen master said to the hotdog vendor, “Make me one with everything.”
Thanks, as usual, to our extremely enlightened contributors for showing us the true path to DX.
