Diane Rehm needs different topics

I love Diane Rehm and her topic selection; but I do wish she would occasionally pick a topic that was not so much a product of the news cycle; or at least took a longer, more philosophical view of current issues and events. Example: why is our discussion of the proper role of government so often in terms of blacks and whites and false choices? We would probably not be in our current economic mess if we were capable of taking more nuanced views of the role of government.

[Ed.: You might try Diane’s second hour, where Monday through Thursday she focuses on a single guest, topic or book.]
