The NPR First Word of the Day
I enjoy listening to NPR as much as the next liberal, but no matter when I turn it on, I always encounter a depressing, horrific story right off the bat. It usually goes something like this:
“In (foreign country) yesterday, (large quantity) of people died when a (natural disaster or terrorist attack) occured just outside of (major city)…”
I know that NPR broadcasts stuff that isn’t all bad news, but I never seem to tune in at those times. So with that in mind, I will begin keeping track of the first word I hear (with the exception of articles and conjunctions) on NPR when I tune in daily.
Today’s first word: “killings”
