One thing that's true about me is that I love listening to sports radio. It's tough for a young, hip guy in Seattle to admit listening to anything other than NPR and KEXP, but I toggle back and forth between 950 KJR and 710 ESPN nonstop. In addition to getting my sports news and talk fix, I find it to be a fascinating sociological study of what radio advertisers think/know about the listener demographic. Here are the main topics of local sports radio commercials: 1) divorce lawyers for men, 2) substance abuse recovery, 3) "male enhancement" and 4) debt restructuring. It's a pretty bleak picture. So, imagine my surprise yesterday when I heard a commercial from the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) advocating for a six year extension of SAFETEA-LU. Oh, by the way, it also featured audio from Presidents Clinton and Reagan.
