How can science ahhhhhhhhrrr explicate "Hamlet"?

I have my alarm set to wake me up to NPR, so usually I arise to the dulcet tones of some public radio smoothie telling me about the volatile political situation in central Andorra, or Joanne Silberner* updating me about new gonorrhea treatments. This morning, though, I was jarred awake by a special editorial supporting "intelligent design" WILLIAM F. BUCKLEY.

Jesus, NPR! Don't you read Town Hall? You're supposed to be a hotbed of crazy liberals! Don't make me listen to Bill "Ahhhhr" Buckley misuse three-dollar words in an attempt to tell a joke that isn't funny! That's like being woken up by a cranky elderly relative farting in your face.

*: Please note: last night, I was unable to remember the name of one of my friends. I am frequently unable to remember the name of people I have met even on multiple occasions. I would probably forget my father's name if it wasn't the same as mine. But I remembered the name of NPR's chief medical science correspondent without even trying.
