The decline of traditional radio

Greetings. When browsing through the selection of stories today from the International Herald Tribune, I couldn't help but notice the one called U.S. radio companies continue to weaken. Though satellite radio wasn't mentioned as far as numbers of listeners in the past few years, I'd be interested to know where it stands among the regular radio, HD Radio, and the like. I think that until the broadcasters bring radio back to what made it so great initially, it's originality, then we'll continue to see radio numbers decline and alternatives such as HD and Satellite Radio increase. Enjoy.

A dog's bedtime prayer

Greetings. I received the following story via email. Enjoy.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
The queen-size bed is soft and deep.
I sleep right in the center groove,
My human being can hardly move.

I've trapped her legs,
she's tucked in tight,
and here is where I pass the night.
No one disturbs me or dares intrude,
Til morning comes and I want food.

I sneak up slowly and it begins,
My nibbles on my human's chin.
she wakes up slowly and smiles and shouts, "You darling beast! Just
cut it out!"
But morning's here and its time to play,
I always seem to get my way.

So thank you Lord, for giving me,
this human person that I see
The one who holds me tight
and shares her bed with me at night!
