MS. REBECCA SHEIR
Welcome to "Metro Connection." I'm Rebecca Sheir. And if you've had your radio tuned to WAMU 88.5 at all recently, you've no doubt caught on to the fact that this week we've been doing our winter membership campaign, that special, special time of the year when we come on the air and ask you again, and again and again to pledge your support now by, yes, calling 202-885-8850 or 800-248-8850. And why do we do it? Is it because we just have a thing for plying you with coffee mugs and tote bags? No, no, no we do it to keep this great service afloat, to help WAMU balance the books so we can keep bringing you, our listeners exciting, informative radio, to keep us moving on an even keel.

Speaking of which, that's what we'll be talking about on this week's show, getting even. And there are all kinds of ways you can get even, right? You can break even. You can even things out by, say, smoothing out a curve or a kink. And of course, you can settle a score, you know, payback time, revenge.
