When listening to All Things Considered
on Friday, Sylvia Poggioli suddenly said "Oh, Shit!" and the line was lost. An e-mail to NPR provided no information.
You have to understand I haven't gone to the Olympics since Munich in 1972, so I get a little nervous about reports that get cut off, and Sylvia spends as much time at the Vatican as most Cardinals, so it was rather unexpected.
It turns out
that Sylvia thought she had lost the connection to Washington, probably because her earphones went dead.
The joys of live radio.
