Magliozzi's anti-math diatribe was certainly "Car Talk" ---
more specifically, exhaust. It was so stupid, unoriginal
and unimaginative that it really isn't worth listening to.
I'd advise people on this list not to bother: you've heard
it all before ("schools never teach us anything useful").
Magliozzi really ought to know better than to think that
calculus is just about finding tangents to, and areas
under, curves. I'm disappointed in NPR for airing this
drivel, but not surprised.
