The fact is I don't like fame, such as I have. I like my readers, and when I meet them, or talk to them here, I feel quite happy, but I try not to do things for exclusively promotional reasons. Doug Berman, the producer of Car Talk is a good guy, and he asked me to be on--so I agreed, and since the brothers are cheap bastards and resist paying anything reasonable, I took a plug as recompense. The radio program must grow in order to survive. Please pester your local radio station, and get friends, relations and total strangers to do it also.
