- Ingrid 9/21/06: "I so enjoy Here On Earth, and, I hear the broadcast, in the day's replay, in the evening, never miss it, actually. I heard last night, September 20th, and now, this moment, Thursday, September 21st, after my supper, I am listening to the broadcast, via the Internet WPR site, your Camus program a second time. I want so very much to have a more robust understanding of Albert Camus. Merci beaucoup for your broadcast."
- Jim 9/20/06: "Doesn't it strike anyone as strange that the White House is bragging that the president of the United States is reading a book that is read in the senior year in many high schools?"
