Given my old age frailties, I get up to pee multiple times at night. 
After returning to bed, I often turn on the radio briefly before going 
back to sleep. Among the preset stations is WOR-AM that hosts George 
Noory's "Coast to Coast", a talk show devoted to flying saucers, ESP, 
astrology, bogus health advice, Assadism (Noory is a rightwing 
Lebanese-American) and other forms of what Leon Trotsky described as 
"capitalist society...puking up the undigested barbarism" of fascism. 
Instead of the usual supernatural mumbo-jumbo purveyor, guess who Noory 
was interviewing last night. None other than Steven Pinker peddling his 
new book. Noory was glad to hear that we've never had it so good.
