"The "Whatever" voice is the symbol of the whole disaffected, amoral, proudly disinterested pack running through our culture. "
You can hear it every day, all day on NPR.

Last night I couldn't sleep and stayed up watching tv. I landed on WHYY, the Philadelphia PBS affiliate. They were airing, evidently having exhausted their usual nonsense, what I suppose they considered filler material: recordings of great performances by great artists, of the greatest works-- artists like Herman Prey, Kathleen Battle, works by Monteverdi and Handel,Strauss, Bernstein, classical ballet with Nuryev--to name just a few I can recall.
It was sublime, and I glimpsed a recollection of what we used to be.
What a difference.
