To everyone who bought a ticket to see me tonight at the Lincoln Theater in Washington, D.C.,
I am so sorry that I had to cancel my appearance. Although I was recovering from a bout of laryngitis, I thought my voice had recovered sufficiently for me to do the event. But Wednesday morning, I realized my voice was unlikely to last though a speech. I thought it best that I spare you the spectacle of me croaking and coughing at the mike. I’m honored that you care enough about Fresh Air and me to have purchased a ticket, and I truly regret letting you down.
