I was surprised and dissapointed in your interview on Baydan Shoes this morning. Frankly it was beneath you.
The gentleman you interviwed sells shoes; your questions on what makes this shoe particularly suitable for throwing and what were his thoughts on the morality of making shoes to throw (I think you used the word "incite") were silly at best and not the up to the standards I expect from NPR.
