What universe are you living in? I found nothing funny or entertaining about the excerpt on today's program.
Incest and other types of sexual abuse cost our society billions to rehabilitate their victims.
I enjoy listening to your program Saturdays. The content is usually entertaining, makes me laugh, or moves me deeply because it is very poignant.
Just wanted to speak for perhaps a few others out there who found the content in poor taste considering the headlines of the girls kidnapped by predators.

"Hilariously entertaining....The essays in Naked re-create the cathartic, the spiritual experience of laughing so hard that it hurts."
Welcome to the hilarious, strange, elegiac, outrageous world of David Sedaris. In Naked, Sedaris turns the mania for memoir on its ear, mining the exceedingly rich terrain of his life, his family, and his unique worldview — a sensibility at once take-no-prisoners sharp and deeply charitable. A tart-tongued mother does dead-on imitations of her young son's nervous tics, to the great amusement of his teachers; a stint of Kerouackian wandering is undertaken (of course) with a quadriplegic companion; a family gathers for a wedding in the face of imminent death. Through it all is Sedaris's unmistakable voice, without doubt one of the freshest in American writing.
One of the most talked-about, most enjoyed bestsellers of the year, Naked offers a collection of hilarious, touching, genre-bending vignettes "guaranteed to make you blow milk out your nose" (Details).
