Overheard at Table 2: The Last Stand

I used to have respect for Teri Gross but my goodness did she have a strangely vacuous series of questions for Stephen King today... she asked him about The Stand, which he wrote 40 years ago, and about how he "felt" about how the virus is now a reality. 

King described how his researcher at the time and he discussed how the flu mutates every year, and how it was just a matter of time, and Gross just kept going back to how did he "feel" about having written such a book.

Finally, he just said that he only felt some cabin fever, like most people now have.

She is normally such a perceptive and thoughtful interviewer.  I wonder how she was feeling today? It sounded like even she felt she was not bringing her "A" game.
