Music is the healing force of the universe.

NPR's Morning Edition had a segment this morning on free jazz drummer Milford Graves, who essentailly runs a heart research lab out of his Queens basement. Graves's rhythmic acumen lends itself to the study of heart troubles, and his work parallels that of doctors at the cutting edge of heart research. (Without the funding, institutional support, or pharma power.)

In much the same way, NPR's cultural coverage parallels that of the New York Times, which ran a story on Milford with exactly the same focus back in November. If our listening is any indication, this seems to be a pattern at NPR, and if you're getting scooped on cultural coverage by the Times, well, you are behind the times in more ways than one.

Yes, but has the Times done anything on The Thompsons? That's one area in which NPR's still got The Gray Lady by the short n' curlies.
