[00:05]Small-minded officials, rude waiters, and ill-mannered taxi drivers
[00:10]are hardly unknown in the US. Yet it is an observation made so frequently
[00:17]that it deserves comment.
[00:24]Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn exemplified American anti-intellectualism.
[00:31]Its hero avoids being civilized-going to school and learning to read-

[00:46]Adding to a woman's increased dose of stress chemicals,

[02:10]During the discussion of rock singing verses at last month's
[02:15]stockholders' meeting, Levin asserted that "music is not the cause of
[02:19]society's ills" and even cited his son, a teacher in the Bronx, New York,
[02:25]who uses rap to communicate with students.
[02:33]Be sparing with quotes. Direct quotes should be used when either the speaker or
[02:38]what he said is surprising, or when the words he used are particularly pithy
[02:44]or graphic. Otherwise you can probably paraphrase him more concisely.
[02:53]A: I don't like him. He is sparing with words.
