Guest host Lynn Neary reads listeners' letters about last week's Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear in Washington, D.C., and Liane Hansen's interview with Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons.

LYNN NEARY, Host:

Ms. Luze felt we dismissed the rally as fluff and went on to say: People came to be a part of a very serious statement about the state of politics in America and the coverage of politics by the news.

NPR: Many of you enjoyed Liane Hansen's interview last week with Matt Groening, creator of "The Simpsons."
