Jason's link to this collection of terrible news segues at McSweeney's reminded me of being on The Satellite Sisters, where my interview about men's room changing tables was preceded by a discussion of a rash of racially motivated murders in Russia. Here's the transcript, just in case, you know, you somehow missed the show that day...
Julie: I mean, there is this very strong cell of ultra-nationalists, and you know, maybe 5,000, 10,000 of these people--
Julie: --in Moscow, in St. Petersburg--who are really targetting--foreign students.
Lian: I mean, Julie, to state the obvious, Russia has no natural African population;
Julie: No, it's not-- no.
Lian: There's not a lot of people of color in Russia, so they really stand out.
Other Sister: That's a terrible story.
Lian: But we're going to totally switch gears now, and we're going to go to a story about a dad who is doing something about changing tables.
