people are listening differently...

That's how Senator Edward Kennedy put it when asked, on yesterday's Diane Rehm Show on NPR, who the great orators are today. Substitute host Andrea Seabrook mentioned Churchill, JFK, Martin Luther King and other great speakers of yore, asking who inspires us in that way today. "People are listening differently" today, he noted, and added that politiicans need to listen differently as well--and change their oratory to reflect today's rhythms and concerns. Hear the whole interview here, though these reflections come very close to the end of the hour program.
