I Am Sorry To Tell You

Thisamericanlife_2 Imagine my surprise this morning, laying in bed this morning, wondering if I had the desire to get up and make coffee before noon (I didn't) and listening to This American Life, when I heard a completely unique take on that old chestnut 'This Is Just To Say' by William Carlos Williams

I don't want to ruin the surprise for you, but I feel that I can say that there are several responses to the poem, written by TAL's contributors, and David Rakoff's is a wonderfully nasty little gem of a poem.

Well worth a listen if your Sunday plans include a relaxing morning with the paper. You can find a listing of their air times here.
