An Evening with NPR's Scott Simon 

When: Mon., Oct. 11, 7 p.m. 2010
Price: $20-$26

National Public Radio may still skew left of FOX News, but it's pretty far removed from the "liberal media" tag that was affixed to it back when right-wing Republicans were fighting to cut its federal funding. In fact, a page on NPR's website includes a graph showing the "balanced" outlook of its audience, along with the assertion that listeners are "well educated, affluent and influential" — not "crazy liberals" — and that to presume otherwise is "blasphemy." Certainly, the announcers sound fair and balanced, none more so than Scott Simon. The Weekend Edition host speaks at 7 tonight at Armstrong Hall (14 E. Cache la Poudre St., for $26, $20 for students and KRCC members. Oddly, Simon's local appearance falls exactly on the nine-year anniversary of his Wall Street Journal op-ed, "Even Pacifists Must Support This War." Might be worth asking about. — Bill Forman
