    of Speaker Pelosi's ascent to her new position.  I know people rag on them, but really, they are imperfect but a frequently good, and right on.  

    (gems like "On the Media", which does a good job of looking at how the media works, or doesn't, also bring important dialogue to the coverage of national politics and news).

      And if nothing else, I can wait until BBC World comes on, and get the news from a different perspective.

      NPR (All Things Considered, IIRC) not only mentioned the import of this historic event, but they broadcast the part of Pelosi's address to Congress where she discussed it:

      "This is an historic moment -- and I thank the leader for acknowledging it. I think you Leader Boehner. It is an historic moment for the Congress, and an historic moment for the women of this country. It is a moment for which we have waited over 200 years. Never losing faith, we waited through the many years of struggle to achieve our rights. But women weren't just waiting; women were working. Never losing faith, we worked to redeem the promise of America, that all men and women are created equal. For our daughters and granddaughters, today we have broken the marble ceiling. For our daughters and our granddaughters, the sky is the limit, anything is possible for them.
