One Woman Show! Sandra Tsing Loh, Master of All Media

Since I offered no graphical evidence to back up some of my last post, I thought I would add a few relevant gems about the poly-talent, Sandra Tsing Loh. As her 2006 bio indicates,

She has been a regular commentator on NPR’s "Morning Edition" and on Ira Glass’ "This American Life." Currently, KPCC (89.3 FM in Los Angeles) broadcasts her daily segment The Loh Down on Science and her weekly segment The Loh Life. American Public Media’s "Marketplace" broadcasts her monthly segment The Loh Down. She is currently a contributing editor for The Atlantic Monthly and was a 2006 finalist for the National Magazine Award.
Living in the environs of Los Angeles, Loh has so far inexplicably resisted launching the much- requested basketball commentary, "The Loh Post". Or is this refusal linked to the retirement of Magic, James, Kareem, Jamaal and Michael? Will we ever know the real truth? Perhaps only the NSA knows for sure.

Nevertheless, it should be clear by now that, with Sandra Tsing Loh, we see that rarest of all artists, an original with pen and piano, stage and studio, microphone and monthly magazine, and even science.

Ms. Loh's meteoric rise from famous performance artist to "master of all media" has not been without its occasional impact crater. Well, perhaps just the one, but it generated a shockwave powerful enough to open a new fault line in the general manager's office of one LA public radio station- a process documented by noted National Review columnist Catherine Seipp. Did I just plug a right-wing writer? If so, only because even The Right is sometimes, well, right.

I look forward to all of your comments, as usual! I'm afraid I'm going backwards with regard to finishing the previously mentioned "books in progress", having been inspired by the blog listed on MetaxuCafe to re-start Fernando Pessoa’s The Book of Disquiet.
