This is the wall in the waiting room of NPR West in Culver City, CA. I was there late last week to tape an interview for the national NPR program Day to Day. The interview, with Alex Cohen, is scheduled to run this morning, November 6th, Election Day 2007. We discussed the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge and the state of America’s voting system, amongst other topics. Check your local listings for time and station.
