Light Dawns on NPR

This morning NPR’s Marketplace Morning Report radio program finally had the good sense not to say at 5:45AM:

The Dow starts the day at…”

So this blogger wrote to them:

Did it finally dawn on you that markets open at the trading point where trading begins, not at the point where trading ended during the prior session? Congratulations. Please use today’s market events as an opportunity to improve your program by eliminating that little piece of mindless banter from your future programs.

If you want to improve your program still more, I suggest that you also lose the snark and tell your listeners far less about what is going on in Hollywood.
