I don’t usually get up early enough to listen to Thought For The Day, but I happened to catch it this morning, and it reminded me just how ludicrous and out of place this segment is in the otherwise sober and serious Today Programme on Radio 4.
(Don’t just believe me, listen to the nonsensical ramblings of Akhandadhi Das [MP3] from their podcast)
Oddly I find myself in agreement with AN Wislon (warning: Daily Mail link). Don’t put an atheist “counterbalance” on this program. Just abolish it altogether. There’s no place for it in a news programme.
