While Laura Ingraham was walking through a Northern Virginia shopping mall one Saturday afternoon, it all became clear to her. Everywhere she turned, she saw signs of the impending disaster: zombie teens texting each other across a café table; a man having his eyebrows threaded at a kiosk; a 50ish woman shoe-horned into a tube top and skinny jeans; and a storefront ad featuring a Victoria´s Secret model spilling out of her push-up bra and into the faces of young passersby. Ingraham wondered to herself, ´´Is this it? Is this what our forefathers fought for? What my parents struggled for? I wonder if Victoria´s Secret is still having that two-for-one sale?´´ A menacing force surrounds us. We see it, we feel it, we know it. The country we love is in grave peril. While politicians and ´´experts´´ prattle on about the debt crisis at home, and terrorism abroad, a more insidious homegrown threat is emerging. It endangers our future and undermines our present. The uncomfortable truth: We have become our own worst enemy. The culture we have created is now turning on us. We´re on the verge of drowning in our ignorance, arrogance, gluttony… can you believe there are only three shots of vanilla in a Caramel Macchiato?!? Now, in an act of patriotic intervention, the most-listened-to woman in talk radio casts her satirical eye upon all that ails American society. In this sharp-witted, comic romp, Laura Ingraham takes you on a guided tour through 10 levels of our cultural hell. You know we´re in trouble when: Airplane seats shrink - just as the passengers expand. Celebrity baby names go from the peculiar (Apple, Stetson, and Daisy Boo) to the pathetic (Bamboo, Blanket, and Bronx). People meticulously tend their virtual crops on Farmville, while their children eat takeout. ´´Breaking News´´ usually means it happened yesterday. The weddings last longer than the marriages.

Released after a three-year stretch in a mental institution, Royston Blake finds that the world has moved on, even Mangel. Gone are most of his old haunts, including Hoppers, where he spent years working the door. In its place: a huge, gleaming new shopping mall, servicing the town´s every consumer need. But not everyone is happy to see the old ways swept aside. A mysterious opposition group calling itself the ´´Old Guard´´ has made its mission abundantly clear on the letters page of the local newspaper, and soon sets about trying to recruit Blake as its agent of retribution. Meanwhile, Blake just wants to settle down with his girl, Sal, and get to know the son he never met. But old habits are tough to break. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Clamp.

In the Metfield of the 1930s, you could do all of your shopping without leaving the village, have a choice of pubs and ´´spend happy evenings helping to dig potatoes and listening to the old boys´´. If this sounds too idyllic to be true, Evelyn Whiting´s charming memoir of growing up in this Suffolk community is quick to remind us that making a living from the land was hard and tedious work in those days. There was no electricity and water came from the sky, or from the pond. In this fascinating little book, Evelyn´s recollection is sharp and her narrative voice is clear. As listeners, we draw near - perhaps, as it were, by the fire in the Red Lion or the Old Duke William - to hear her retell her stories of the Metfield characters she remembers so well, and recall a way of life that most of us have never known. 1.

Humorist Jean Shepherd 1921-1999, perhaps now best known as the creator/narrator of the perennial holiday movie favorite ´´A Christmas Story´´, had a long career on radio which culminated during the period of 1956-1977 when he was heard most days on WOR radio in New York, a clear-channel station heard along the Eastern seaboard and points west. Shepherd´s radio work was both unique and transitional in the development of today´s talk radio. Shepherd could talk, and talk he did, touching his listeners intimately as if speaking to an audience of one. Shepherd was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2005. In ´´Don´t Be a Leaf´´, Jean Shepherd muses on the impact of dirty glasses, shopping for cars with the old man, flyswatters, growing up with the White Sox and the great divide between Southside and Northside baseball fans. Shepherd asks the questions: Are you the rider or the ridden? What is the Master Plan Illusion and what is your Master Plan? So, friends, sit back and enjoy this collection. Keep smiling, keep your knees loose, and don´t give them a sitting target! 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/radi/000826/rt_radi_000826_sample.mp3.
